I praise you Lord for the things you do
For you're with me every day
I praise you for the love you give
As you show me how to pray.
I praise you for the gift you gave
Through your suffering and sacrifice
I praise you for all the things you did
For the Love you give is nice.
I praise you for the blood you shed
As you cleansed me of my sin
You changed my life from what it was
You redeemed me from within.
I love you Lord with all my soul
Let me be faithful in all my ways
So I can enter your gates with thanksgiving
And, your courts with all my praise.
