Thank You Lord For Saving Me

 

Some day I will be laid to rest (8)

And flowers will brighten the room (8)

My soul will go where life is best (8)

In God’s home I’ll sing Him a tune (8)

 

Thank you Lord, for saving me (7)

How do I deserve Your love (7)

You died, so I could be free (7)

Thank you Lord, for saving me (7)

 

You know all I have done on earth (8)

Just a sinner so unworthy (8)

All through my life, since my birth (8)

Seems I followed ways so worldly (8)

 

Thank you Lord, for saving me (7)

How do I deserve Your love (7)

You died, so I could be free (7)

Thank you Lord, for saving me (7)

 

I’ve read your word from end to end (8)

Genesis to Revelation (8)

Ten commandments, Beatitudes (8)

And all of its declarations (8)

 

Some day I will be laid to rest (8)

And flowers brighten the room (8)

My soul will go where life is best (8)

In God’s home I’ll sing Him a tune (8)

 

Thank you Lord, for saving me (7)

How do I deserve Your love (7)

You died, so I could be free (7)

Thank you Lord, for saving me (7)

 

Thank you Lord, for saving me (7)

You died so I could be free (7)

Hi Susie I like the lyric just one thing you may want to change or even just eliminate

I’ve read your word from end to end (8)

Genesis to Revelation (8)


Ten commandments, Beatitudes (8)

And all of its declarations (8)

I does not seem to fit anywhere in the lyric.. I think I would just eliminate it..

 

Good work as usual
