Good Thing to Give Thanks


"It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD... to shew forth Thy lovingkindness in the morning, and Thy faithfulness every night... Thou art from everlasting" (Psalm 92:1,2; 93:2).  "From everlasting... My delights were with the sons of men" (Proverbs 8:23).  "The LORD thy God... will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing" (Zephaniah 3:17).  "Then said Jesus unto Peter... The cup which My Father hath given Me, shall I not drink it?... For this cause came I into the world " (John 18:11,37). 

How good it is to think of Christ
And give Him thanks for all He's done,
Who knew He would be sacrificed
Before this world had begun.    

Give thanks for everlasting love
That Christ has shown to sinful men,
Delighting in us from above,
From everlasting; even then!

Give thanks that Jesus Christ foresaw
The joy that moved Him to endure
The cross to satisfy His law
And offer us redemption's cure. 

O Lord, we join with heaven's ranks
To sing Your praise forevermore! 
It is a good thing to give thanks
As we remember and adore.
