Viano Dee || Gateful

Lord, where would I be, without you
Lord, where would I be, if not for you
Lord, where would I be, without you
Lord, where would I be…

Father, I just wanna say that I thank you
I’ll forever be thankful and grateful
For the love that you show and give freely
In excess sef when I don’t deserve it

You’ve proved yourself overtime, that is true
If not for grace, wonder what would ensue
My life may have ended a long time, but I’m alive so I bless you

For my meals, paid bills, for the things that I have
For the gift of life, my family and friends
For the times I had and the times when I lacked
For the days I was sad and the days I was glad

For the last heartbreak that made me strong
For the several trials I’ve overcome
For the many roadblocks you set in my path so I could avoid destruction

For numerous attacks you saved me from
And the cold battles you fought and won
For your mercy overwhelming, ever flowing
Neutralizing all my mistakes

For your grace, great joy, for my peace of mind
For the days you showed up when I had no dime
For the times, I was lost, in depression
When you came right through, came to my rescue

For my fears that you crushed and my sins that you bought
For the truth that I know that has made me bold
For each time you correct me when I go astray
And the times that you fixed me when I was in pieces
My life is so much better with you in it, I can conquer
But still I ask for more grace, teach me your ways so my days I can number

Lord, where would I be, without you
Lord, where would I be, if not for you
Lord, where would I be, without you
Lord, where would I be…without you
