Verse I

As the world looks upon me, as I struggle along
They say I have nothing, but they are so wrong
In my heart I'm rejoicing, how I wish they could see
Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me


There's a roof up above me
I've a good place to sleep
There's food on my table
And shoes on my feet
You gave me your love Lord
And a fine family
Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me

Verse II

Now I know I'm not wealthy, and these clothes , they're not new
I don't have much money, but Lord I have you
And to me that's all that matters, though the world cannot see
Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me

Repeat Chorus, then:

Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me

    If we look back at the old testament when salvation was not an easy thing to have I can't stop giving thanks to God for the cross and for these songs that at most times when I seem to backslide reminds me of God's blessings and promesses unto my life. Every day that passesby I give thanks for life, for the family he gave me, protection and above all I give thanks for salvation. Thank you Jesus Christ for the cross.

    God's grace, god's mercy, his love for us is so unconditional. His forgiveness is never ending. He gives us what we do not deserve instead of what we do deserve, all because he looks through the eyes of jesus. Thank you lord, for your blessings on me. There is nothing I can do, ever, that can buy your love or earn your love. It is so unconditional, so huge, so awe inspiring. How could anyone not believe?

    I think the song means that, when the world sees you, and it looks like (to them) that you have nothing and that your useless, you know in your heart that god has blessed you so much. God has blessed me so much, I am 16 years old and I have learned a lot through out the years. God has really opend my eyes! I thank god for everything! He is so amazing. I just thank him for blessing! God bless all of you! (:

    We have so much to be thankful for and every blessings comes from god. God supplies all of our needs according to his riches in glory. Not our wants, but our needs. God is a great provider. The world standards of blessings are much different sometimes. They might think riches or fame are blessings and maybe they are but what about having enough to eat? Some are homeless and eating out of garbage cans. Having good health or wonderful friends are blessings not everyone enjoys as well. The list goes on and on. I am so glad for all god has given to me!

    I am so thankful that I have god to depend upon. Every time a prayer is answered, I thank god. Every time I am in need, god provides. Every time there is troubled waters, god is my ship in the storm that's raging. I thank god that I had loving and christian parents, who took us to church and the seed was planted. I praise god for everything and everyone in my life. I love this song, because the words fit my life so perfectly, they have such a deep meaning for me. I truly thank god for every prayer he has answered.
