Is 'Thank You Lord' Ever Enough?


How do we even thank God?
Because no thanks will ever be enough
He was there from the beginning
Saving me every minute
Should I thank Him for my sight?
Or my family?
Is “Thank you Lord” ever enough?

Oh no, wait did I just use the word “my”
You see that’s how we are
Taking ownership of everything
That we borrowed from Him
Should I thank Him for my intelligence?
Or the fact that my heart is beating?
Is “Thank you lord” ever enough?
Really?

Oh no, there I go again
With the my my my my word
Why am I obsessed with the word “my”
Does that show how attention seeker I am?
Wanting everything for myself?
And still, I wonder
How do we even thank God?
Is “thank you Lord” ever enough?
Is it enough?
Really?

Walking down the street
Anything can hit me or overrun me
But He is watching over me
And I still have the audacity
To just say “Thank you Lord”
Is that enough?
Is it enough?
Is “Thank you Lord” ever enough?

Can you help me out?
Can anybody help me out?
I am overwhelmed
By His mercy and Love
I am confused
By my disobedience and ungratefulness
I ask you, is thank you lord ever enough?
Is It?
