You are Good

Every now and then, I hear a song that just hits me. If you are a facebook friend, you've already seen this on my page, but it is worth repeating here. I resonate with the words to this--it just reminds me that underneath all of my jealousy and pride, I truly am grateful.

You are Good by Nichole Nordeman

When the sun starts to rise and I open my eyes
You are good
So good.
In the heat of the day with each stone that I lay
You are so good.

With every breath I take in
I'll tell you I'm grateful again
When the moon climbs high before each kiss goodnight
You are good.

When the road starts to turn around each bend I've learned
You are good
So good.
And when somebody's hand holds me up, helps me stand
You are so good.

With every breath I take in
I'll tell you I'm grateful again
Cause it's more than enough just to know I am loved
And You are good.

So how can I thank You?
What can I bring?
What can these poor hands lay at the feet of the King?
I'll sing You a love song
It's all that I have
To tell you I'm grateful for holding my life in Your hands

When it's dark and it's cold and I can't feel my soul
You so good.
When the world has gone gray and the rain's here to stay
You are still good.

With every breath I take in
I'll tell you I'm grateful again
And the storm may swell even then it is well
And You are good

So how can I thank You?
What can I bring?
What can these poor hands lay at the feet of the King?
I'll sing You this new song
It's all that I have
To tell you I'm grateful for holding my life in Your hands

I'll sing You a love song
It's all that I have
To tell you I'm grateful for holding my life in Your hands

You are holding my life in Your hands
