Story Behind The Song: Thank You, Jesus

Bob Filoramo has written an exceptional song for Thanksgiving called "Thank You, Jesus," one which the lyrics really speak for themselves. [scroll down to hear song in the iTunes iMix layer]. 

ETA: Bob writes: "Thank You Jesus was written for my brother's wedding. My brother had been through some very difficult times and as I considered how God had rescued him, what he had come through and where he was that day, I could think of nothing else to say but "Thank You Jesus"; hence the refrain: What can we say but thank you Jesus?

We often try real hard to praise God eloquently with lots of words and that's great, but sometimes it hits me that all I need to say is Thank You Jesus for all that you've done for me. That's basically the origin and spirit of the song.

Enjoy:

Thank You, Jesus

We are in awe as we behold what You have done.
We stand amazed as we see Your plan unfold.
What can we say, what can we do
To express our gratitude
for revealing Your great power in our lives?

What can we say but "Thank You, Jesus!"
for all that You have done for us? ...

Here I Am, Lord - Dan Schutte

I sang this at the Mass of Christian Burial of Agnes Hartmann yesterday. She was 101 years old. 

1.
I, the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard my people cry.
All who dwell in dark and sin,
My hand will save.

Chorus
Here am I, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you lead me.
I will hold your people in my heart.

2.
I, who made the stars of night,
I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I send?

Chorus

3.
I, the Lord of snow and rain,
I have borne my people"s pain.
I have wept for love of them.
They turn away.

Chorus

4.
I will break their hearts of stone,
Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak my words to them.
Whom shall I send?

Chorus

5.
I, the Lord of wind and flame,
I will send the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them.
My hand will save.

Chorus

6.
Finest bread I will provide,
'Til their hearts be satisfied.
I will give my life to them.
Whom shall I send?

Chorus

How Great Thou Art

How Great Thou Art sung at a funeral at St. Matthew's Catholic Church on 9/9/2015. Verses 1 and 4. Read about the song here: http://www.hymntime.com/tch/htm/h/o/w/how_great_Thou_art.htm

1. O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the *worlds thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the *rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed:

Refrain

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee:
How great thou art! How great thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee:
How great thou art! How great thou art!

2. When through the woods and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze:

Refrain

3. And when I think that God, his Son not sparing,
Sent him to die, I scarce can take it in,
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

Refrain

4. When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then *I shall bow in humble adoration,
And there proclaim, My God, how great thou art!

Author’s original words are works, mighty and shall I bow
