Thank You Lord

I learned this song when I was in college. This song has been such a blessing to me. I remember many times when I sang this song with tears in my eyes.

(F) Bb C
And I Thank You Lord
Am Dm
For the trials that come my way
Gm C
In that way I can grow each day
As I let You lead

And I thank You Lord
For the patience those trials bring
In the process of growing
I can learn to care

Bb C
But it goes against the way I am
Am Dm
To put my human nature down

Gm C F F7
And let the Spirit take control of all I do
'Cause when those trials come
C Am Dm
my human nature shouts the things to do
Gm C F
And God's soft prompting can be easily ignored

But I thank You Lord with each trial I feel inside
That You're there to help, lead and guide me away from wrong
'Cause You promised Lord that with every testing
That Your way of escaping is easier to bear

Yes, I thank You Lord for the victory that growing brings
In surrender of everything life is so worthwhile
And I thank You Lord that when everything's put in place
Out in front I can see Your face and it's there You belong
