GOODNESS AND MERCY
Surely goodness and mercy have followed me all the days of my life.
My Lord has been with me through many a struggle and strife.
From the day I was born, through all these long years,
He has carried my burdens and calmed all my fears.
My blessings out number the stars of the sky
Or the sands of the desert, so hot and dry.
Life hasnít been easy, Iíve had hardships to face.
But He has seen me through with His amazing grace.
Thank you Lord for tender mercyís and everlasting love.
I await the day you come down from above,
In silver, white clouds of radiant glory,
Bringing peace, and fulfilling the age old story.
No more will we know heartache as we walk streets of pure gold,
Forever in Thy presence, Thy loving face to behold.
