Nichole Nordeman - Gratitude

rate me

Send some rain, would You send some rain?<br />

'Cause the earth is dry and needs to drink again<br />

And the sun is high and we are sinking in the shade<br />

Would You send a cloud, thunder long and loud?<br />

Let the sky grow black and send some mercy down<br />

Surely You can see that we are thirsty and afraid<br />

But maybe not, not today<br />

Maybe You'll provide in other ways<br />

And if that's the case ...<br />

<br />

We'll give thanks to You with gratitude<br />

For lessons learned in how to thirst for You<br />

How to bless the very sun that warms our face<br />

If You never send us rain<br />

<br />

Daily bread, give us daily bread<br />

Bless our bodies, keep our children fed<br />

Fill our cups, then fill them up again tonight<br />

Wrap us up and warm us through<br />

Tucked away beneath our sturdy roofs<br />

Let us slumber safe from danger's view this time<br />

Or maybe not, not today<br />

Maybe You'll provide in other ways<br />

And if that's the case ...<br />

<br />

We'll give thanks to You with gratitude<br />

A lesson learned to hunger after You<br />

That a starry sky offers a better view<br />

If no roof is overhead<br />

And if we never taste that bread<br />

<br />

Oh, the differences that often are between<br />

Everything we want and what we really need<br />

<br />

So grant us peace, Jesus, grant us peace<br />

Move our hearts to hear a single beat<br />

Between alibis and enemies tonight<br />

Or maybe not, not today<br />

Peace might be another world away<br />

And if that's the case ...<br />

<br />

We'll give thanks to You with gratitude<br />

For lessons learned in how to trust in You<br />

That we are blessd beyond what we could ever dream<br />

In abundance or in need<br />

And if You never grant us peace ...<br />

<br />

But, Jesus, would You please ...
