The words of one of Andrae Crouch’s greatest songs rang in my head today:
How can I say thanks
for the things You have done for me?
Things so undeserved,
yet You gave to prove Your love for me;
the voices of a million angels
could not express my gratitude.
All that I am and ever hope to be,
I owe it all to Thee. "My Tribute" – Words and music by Andrae Crouch
This is a song that transcends generations because of its’ timeless truth:
With His blood, He has saved me
By His power, He has raised me.
To God be the glory
For the things he has done. "My Tribute", Andrae Crouch
During this Thanksgiving week, we’re thankful for the bounty that we will partake in; for the homes we can share it in; for the transportation that takes us there; for warm clothes to wear on the way; we’re thankful for many, many THINGS – but what would they be, had not "HIS blood, saved us? How could we enjoy them if HIS power, not raised us Whatever we have, whatever we are – "To God" – be (all) the glory for the things He has done!
