As I was working on this post I discovered that a webpage featuring the lyrics to my song, “Thank you, thank you”, had some curious typos. Also, the verse I wanted to spotlight (“Thank you, Lord, for making me”) isn’t included in the recording.
Please overlook the oversight, and join in this simple song of thanks to the God who made us, loves us, saved us and blesses us in countless ways. Perhaps make it personal and add some verses of your own.
O my God teach my heart where and how to seek you,
where and how to find you …
You are my God and you are my All
and I have never seen you.
You have made me and remade me,
You have bestowed on me all the good things I possess,
Still I do not know you …
I have not yet done that for which I was made …
Teach me to seek you …
I cannot seek you unless you teach me
or find you unless you show yourself to me.
Let me seek you in my desire,
let me desire you in my seeking.
Let me find you by loving you,
let me love you when I find you.
