Thank you for the gifts we treasure

Thank you for the gifts we treasure

Tune: Praise My Soul the King of Heaven

 

Thank you for the gifts we treasure,
Past and present, seen, unseen.
People, places, life’s experience,
Faith and doubt, our hopes and dreams.
Come with light and come with comfort,
Shine in us through all our days.

Thank you for the wealth of memories
Of our children, still so dear.
Tears and laughter, joys and sorrows
Make their presence feel so near.
Come with light and come with comfort,
Shine in us through all our days.

Thank you for the care of others
As we walk unchartered ways;
Hands that hold ours through the sorrow,
Shining light in darkest days.
Come with light and come with comfort,
Shine in us through all our days.

Thank you for the hope that fills us
As we journey from this place
To that time where all our questions,
Tears and longing find deep peace.
Come with light and come with comfort,
Shine in us through all our days.
