Thank You in our JOY
Thank You in our times of

perceived lack

Thank You because in
Your patience
Your salvation is true

For the suffering man in the cold
For the lost dog
For the rich man who thinks
they have it all

My heart aches because
Your JOY is full
but we don’t know

Why did I stand here
ringing a bell
that sings over Cowlitz County
The rings louder than
the truth we don’t have time for

Until they trust me
I will stand here
& in your patience
I will see your salvation
become real for more
than the 12 in this room

Sometimes I don’t hear either
so I will thank You
that You are true & never moveĀ and I never lack
