A Song of Thanks (poem by me)

Thank You, Lord, for being our Father,
Thank You, Lord, for being our God,
All of our work adds up to nothing,
Our deeds are filthy rags to You,
You graciously provide for us,
As Your Word promises You will do,
Let us touch the hem of Your garment,
Oh, to bow down at Your feet,
We will break the alabaster box,
Pour it on Your graceful head,
Let the anointing oil run down,
For You have been chosen,
And You have chosen us,
We are God’s children & His precious Heirs,
We do not need to worry about a thing.

“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.” —Psalm 42:5

  1. This is such a lovely poem Kim. Thanks for sharing it…. you know, this is the second time the “alabaster box” has come up in the last few days. When I the saw last reference to the alabaster box, I thought then, I must write a poem or inspirational article about this…. I just love the words “Alabaster Box” ….

    Also, I’ve been meaning to thank you again for the email with the final book for our childhood stories. It’s really lovely, I intend to order some printed books along with copies of the previous books of yours which I’ve been honoured to be in. Is Amazon the best (only) way to purchase ?

    Thanks Kim, May God continue to bless your writing, Sandra 🕊

  2. I feel the alabaster box is such a lovely representation of everything valuable to us. Your poem/article will be amazing. It is neat to see how God moves ideas through His kingdom. Childhood Remembrances will be available from blurb.com soon. I will let you know. Blessings to you, my dear friend Sandra! You are a joy to our Father.
