Thankful Heart: Day 10

Praise the Lord!

If you can smile when your heart is broken
and laugh in sorrow's face...
If you can ignore the harsh word spoken
with humility and grace,
Praise the Lord!

If you can resist the next temptation
and rebound when you fail...
If you can sing through tribulation
and pray when fears assail,
Praise the Lord!

If you can finish the race you started
knowing the race is won...
If you can sail the course you charted
through storm and setting sun,
Praise the Lord!

If you can forgive the sins of others
who brought you pain today...
If you can respect all men as brothers
and always earn your pay,
Praise the Lord!

If you can befriend the lost and friendless
with kindness from your cup...
If you can prevail when doubts seem endless
refusing to give up,
Praise the Lord!
