The Blessing You Give

Dear Lord of all my days and years,

The joyful times, the pain and tears

My peace and calm within the storm

That keeps me safe from harm

I know that tears must sometimes fall

To help me stand up strong and tall,

All strength and power is Yours to give,

Your hand is there each day I live.

When on the mountaintop I stand

The blessings flow from Your strong hand

But when the valley days are here,

1 feel Your presence always near.

Just fill me with Your love each day

To give to others, by the way,

The blessings that You give to me,

Help me to share them lovingly

That I might be Your light of love,

A blessing from Your throne above.

There are so many in despair

I need to show that You are there.

So Lord of all my days and years,

Help me to dry another’s tears,

To show the love You give each day

The blessings we should give away.
