A thankful kind of heart knows it is forgiven,
A sweet rest from doubt and fear,
Knowing it belongs to One who has risen,
Our Good Shepherd is always faithful and near.
A thankful kind of heart has given it all away,
Trading what could never be kept,
For treasures in heaven that forever will stay,
An eternal home paid by the tears Jesus wept.
A thankful kind of heart is always being filled,
Our souls are led to a fountain deep within,
Where the storms of life are calmed and stilled,
Each day’s discovery anew is where we begin.
A thankful kind of heart is easily spread,
When praise and joy walks into a place,
We proclaim it to remember all that He said,
God invites all who would hear to taste of His grace.
A thankful kind of heart has found itself,
Hidden in the One that forever will hold,
Life in His hands, not put on a shelf,
Walking in His warmth we never grow cold.
A thankful kind of heart beats to a rhythm divine,
Not heeding the cadence of life lived too fast,
The song in our heart is His own design,
A pleasant melody with no future, no past.
A thankful kind of heart shines like a light,
Warm as a bonfire with ears to hear,
The stories of pain once dark as the night,
Love so bright, it captures each tear.
A thankful kind of heart is one given to Christ,
He paid the ransom that only He could pay,
To hold His desire no matter the price,
He speaks of His love as we ask Him to stay.
