A SIMPLE THING

 

CHORUS 2x

JUST A SIMPLE THING TO SAY 

THANK YOU PRECIOUS LORD
JUST (SUCH) A SIMPLE THING TO DO
LET ME PRAISE YOU EVERY MORN’

COMMENTARY

The work and intelligence required to praise God every morning is very minimal yet being such a simple thing it is a very difficult proposition to fulfill. My self-centred nature prevents me from wanting to enter into worship with God. It takes discipline to form a godly habit and Satan will try his best to distract me in honouring God.

VERSE 1

WHEN I RISE AND SEE THE SKY

BLUE OR CLOUDED GRAY
I WONDER AT THIS WORLD
YOUR GREAT LOVING HANDS HAVE MADE

AND WHEN I HEAR A NEWBORN CRY
CRADLED IN MY ARMS
I KNOW THAT THERE IS NO OTHER LOVE
LIKE YOURS ALMIGHTY GOD

I am going to have good days and bad, but when my mindset is on God’s creative greatness and unconditional love for me, I can change my gloominess to joy, despite any change in my circumstances.

I need to remind myself of the privilege that God has given me as a mother/father to participate in creating a human life and having the honour to shape and mold this young soul into a godly unique individual for God’s glory.

 
CHORUS 2x  
 
VERSE 2

WHEN I THINK OF ALL YOU’VE DONE
FOR EACH BLESSED DAY
AND ALL THE LOVE YOU’VE POURED OUT                                                                THERE ARE NO WORDS TO SAY

BUT LET ME TRY TO TELL YOU
ALL YOU MEAN TO ME
IN THIS SIMPLE SONG I SING
WITH LOVE SO GRATEFULLY

I forget to consider all the favor that God gives me daily. It is usually after losing these benefits that I realize how blessed I have been.

After breaking my glasses, I realized that my sight is a precious gift that God has given me.

Only after having cold showers in Uganda did I appreciate having a hot shower in Canada.

Not having sunlight for most of November in Sweden made me appreciate God’s gift of light.

 
CHORUS 2x  
 
BRIDGE

LORD I LOVE YOU,
YES I DO
AND LORD I’M SO GRATERFUL
GRATEFUL LORD TO YOU

I am grateful for the Father’s plan of salvation  Eph 1:3,4,5,6 and Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross to pay for my sins 1 Pe 2:24 and the gift of the Holy Spirit Jn 14:16 to teach me wonderful truths.
