Gratitude

by Nichole Nordeman
album: Woven and Spun (2002)

Send some rain, would You send some rain?
Cause the earth is dry and needs to drink again
And the sun is high and we are sinking in the shade
Would You send a cloud, thunder long and loud?
Let the sky grow black and send some mercy down
Surely You can see that we are thirsty and afraid
But maybe not, not today
Maybe You'll provide in other ways
And if that's the case …

We'll give thanks to You with gratitude
For lessons learned in how to thirst for You
How to bless the very sun that warms our face
If You never send us rain

Daily bread, give us daily bread
Bless our bodies, keep our children fed
Fill our cups, then fill them up again tonight
Wrap us up and warm us through
Tucked away beneath our sturdy roofs
Let us slumber safe from danger's view this time
Or maybe not, not today
Maybe You'll provide in other ways
And if that's the case…

We'll give thanks to You with gratitude
A lesson learned to hunger after You
That a starry sky offers a better view
If no roof is overhead
And if we never taste that bread

Oh, the differences that often are between
Everything we want and what we really need

So grant us peace, Jesus, grant us peace
Move our hearts to hear a single beat
Between alibis and enemies tonight
Or maybe not, not today
Peace might be another world away
And if that's the case…

We'll give thanks to You with gratitude
For lessons learned in how to trust in You
That we are blessed beyond what we could ever dream
In abundance or in need
And if You never grant us peace…

But, Jesus, would You please…

It is such a beautiful song.
Another song that brings tears to my eyes..
With deepest gratitude to my sister for sending me this song.

    Hi Peijie,
    I stumbled somehow upon your blog. Just want to let you know the lyrics of this song which I chanced upon on your blog are really speaking to me. It's the second time today I have randomly received the suggestion that I must give thanks in all circumstances. Am going through a tough patch now but yet that is what He says.
    Thanks for allowing your blog to be a place that God can use to bring comfort and healing to others!

    Things will get better. It always does..
    God bless..
