Oftentimes I pause each day
by Bob Day
To raise my eyes above
And thank the Lord for all the ways
He has of showing love.
He blesses me with food each day
To keep my body strong;
A place to sleep and clothes to wear,
And fills my heart with song.
And all the wonders of the world
Are there for me to share
With splendor far exceeding what
I search for in my prayer.
My joys are wrapt in blessings
That fit me like a glove,
And yet the greatest joy I've known
Is having Him to love.
