    A Thankful Heart

    A THANKFUL HEART

    VERSE:

    I’VE COME TO LEARN IT’S A THANKFUL HEART THAT PROSPERS

    WHEN YOU COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS EVERYDAY

    YOUR DAYS SEEM BRIGHTER – YOUR LOAD WILL SEEM MUCH LIGHTER

    YOUR WORLD APPEARS IN A WHOLE DIFFERENT WAY

     

    APPRECIATE THE COLORS AND THE LIFE AROUND YOU

    THEN FEEL THE PRESENCE OF THEIR BEAUTY SURROUND YOU

    CHORUS:

    A THANKFUL HEART WILL OPEN DOORS

    THE ONES THAT SEEMED CLOSED BEFORE

    A THANKFUL HEART HOLDS THE KEY

    DEEP IN THIS MYSTERY LIES ‘LE JOIE DE VIVRE’

    VERSE:

    WHEN YOU’RE DOWN AND OUT IT’S HARD TO FEEL GRATEFUL

    EVERYTHING AROUND LOOKS DARK AND GREY

    BUT NOW MORE THAN EVER – RECALL WHAT MAKES YOU SMILE

    APPRECIATE THE THINGS THAT MAKE YOUR LIFE WORTH WHILE

     

    ASSURE YOURSELF TO TRUST IN A ‘HIGHER REASON’

    YOUR GOOD IS COMING SURELY AS THE CHANGING SEASONS

     

                                        * ‘Le joie de vivre’ translates from French as: the joy of life
