THANK YOU

TURN AROUND AND THE TIME GOES

IT QUICKLY PASSES AS WE ALL KNOW

BUT WHEN I LOOK AND SEE WHERE I HAVE GONE

I KNOW WITHOUT YOU IT WOULD NOT BE DONE

SO I THANK YOU

I WANNA THANK YOU

YOU WALKED BESIDE ME TO REACH MY DREAMS

AND I JUST WANT TO SAY

THANK YOU

THERE WAS LAUGHTER AND SOMETIMES TEARS

SO MANY HELPING HANDS THROUGH ALL THE YEARS

WE DANCED AND WORKED TO BRING A RAY OF LIGHT

FOR FRIGHTENENED CHILDREN IN THE DARKEST NIGHT

CHORUS

IF I NEVER TOOK THE TIME TO SAY

YOU TOUCHED SO MANY HEARTS IN SPECIAL WAYS

YOU GAVE US ALL WINGS TO FLY

AND SPECIAL MOMENTS IN SO MANY LIVES

BRIDGE (mm-hu hum)

CHORUS

God had placed the orphans of Uganda on my heart and through eight years of fundraising and support from the students and teachers of Westview Secondary in Maple Ridge, BC, I was able to raise over $50,000, culminating with a trip to Uganda and the opening of March Christian School, a home for 162 poorest of the poor children. Julia wrote this song for my retirement party that I shared with my fellow teachers, thanking them for helping me live out my dream to be used by God to help the poor in this suffering world.
