31 days: grateful

This is what my heart is singing today.

 

Grateful
by Art Garfunkel

I’ve got a warm place to  sleep
Some nights I lie awake counting gifts
Instead of counting sheep

I’ve got a heart that can hold love
I’ve got a mind that can think
There may be times when I lose the light
And let my spirits sink but I can’t  stay depressed
When I remember how I’m blessed

Grateful, grateful,  truly grateful I am
Grateful, grateful, truly blessed and duly grateful

Within a city of strangers
I got a family of friends
No matter what  rocks and brambles fill the way
I know that they will stay until the end

I feel a hand holding my hand
It’s not a hand you can see
But on the  road to the promised land
This hand will shepherd me through delight and  despair
Holding tight and always there

Grateful, grateful, truly  grateful I am
Grateful, grateful, truly blessed and duly grateful

It’s  not that I don’t want a lot
Or hope for more, or dream of more
But giving  thanks for what I’ve got
Makes me happier than keeping score

In a  world that can bring pain
I will still take each chance
For I believe that  whatever the terrain
Our feet can learn to dance
Whatever stone  life may sling We can moan or we can sing

Grateful, oh grateful, truly  grateful I am
Grateful, grateful, truly blessed and duly grateful
Truly  blessed and duly grateful

 

Oh, and it’s a beautiful children’s book, too. If you haven’t yet checked it out, I’d highly recommend it!
