"Good things found in thee, in that thou… prepared thine heart to seek God" (2 Chronicles 19:3). "O give thanks unto the LORD… Who remembered us in our low estate… and hath redeemed us" (Psalm 136:1,23,24). "Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom" (Proverbs 18:1). "We know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true… This is the true God, and eternal life" (1 John 5:20).
How good are the things that God gave
In order that He may be found
By those He is longing to save,
Preparing their hearts as good ground.
Give thanks to the Lord who redeemed
Our souls with a ransom so great,
As hopeless then as it had seemed,
Undone our helpless estate!
He drew us with heart preparation
To part from our sinful behavior
In order to find His salvation
Through Jesus our wonderful Savior.
O Lord, we give thanks for good things
That we understand are from You
By grace like a fountain that springs
With life everlasting and true.
