I Used To Wonder...

 

I used to sit and wonder what it would feel like to hold a child so tight
The thought was overwhelming and I knew that it would feel just right
You came into my life and touched every bit of my lonesome heart
Thatís just the child you are and I figured it out from the very start

God knew that I needed you to change my indecent way of living
He reached down from heaven and used you to show me the meaning of giving
Little did I know that many of lives would be touched by you alone
For you are the reason why people of all walks of life have a joyful song

Chorus:

Thank you for giving to the Lord, for I am a life that was changed
Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am so glad you gave

I know that God is proud of you for the things big and small you do
He must have a great big smile for He alone was the one who created you
You have done all the things that glorify Him and it is seen by so many
The lives that you have touched are by far so big and so plenty

And when you leave this world and see the face of Jesus and hold his hand
The people that you leave behind will somehow look up and understand
God had a purpose for sending a beautiful child to this place
It was a special deed that you had done for Him to show His awesome grace

Chorus:

Thank you for giving to the Lord, for I am a life that was changed
Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am so glad you gave 

And when the people you leave behind have finished their work here
They will travel on to heaven and look for you among the many there
I know that next to Jesus you will be awaiting with arms opened wide
You will be glad to see us again and hear what you have done to us inside

I will be one of the many of lives that you so generously touched
You are my child and have done so much for me here on earth
Up in heaven I will see you as I never before have seen that face
I will join the other lives you touched and come to you and say

Chorus:

Thank you for giving to the Lord, for I am a life that was changed
Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am so glad you gave
