God gives us so much blessing,
In our great world today.
So much we take for granted
And don’t mention we pray.
The precious gift of eyes to see
The beauty all around.
The sense of touch and also taste,
The joys of hearing sound.
Our families are a precious gift,
But our lives gets out of hand,
When we’re so busy wanting things,
That we do not understand.
The more we earn, will not suffice,
Keeping up with those we know,
For we become dissatisfied,
When greed begins to grow.
Envy makes us want so much,
We become too blind to see,
What it does to families,
When we could be so free.
There is so much more meaning,
When we seek God’s way first.
He knows before, all that we need,
To satisfy our thirst.
When we decide to follow Him,
We find we’re satisfied,
With the simple joys of life,
With the things He does provide.
He paid the price for all our sins,
Through Him,we’ve hope in heaven.
Eyes are opened to see the blessing,
Of all that God has given.
