I thank Thee, Lord, that in Thy blood,
My guilt is washed away;
I thank Thee that mine eyes behold
A bright and glorious day;
I thank Thee, Lord, for faith to see
A world of endless joy in Thee.

I thank Thee for a throne of grace
Where Thou dost bend Thine ear,
And I may breathe my soul’s request
When only Thou canst hear,
And hold communion sweet with Thee,
When but Thine eye beholdeth me.

I thank Thee for the hope of life
That looks beyond the tomb;
I thank Thee for the light that shines
To cheer me thro’ its gloom;
And Lord, for all Thy gifts to me,
My loudest praise I give to Thee.
