Words and music by Bob Hartman

Jesus, I'm thankful for your love
And it's been you I've been thinking of
I've got a home in heaven above

You gave me my life when I was losing, I was choosing my own way
And with a miracle you changed me, rearranging me each day
Now I'm so thankful for your presence taking residence within
You've given me that sweet assurance of endurance to the end

(chorus)
Jesus, I'm thankful for your love
And it's been you I've been thinking of
I've got a home in heaven above
Father, I'm thankful I'm your son
And I believe you're the only one
Who could have forgiven all that I've done

Sometimes we forget the victory's won
Taking for granted what you've done
Forgetting to thank you for your Son

Now every day I know you're with me to assist me in the fight
And I know my life will not be hollow when I follow in your light
