Tragedies are common place
All kinds of diseases, people are slipping away
Economies down, people can't get enough pay
But as for me, all I can say is
Thank you Lord for all You've done for me, yeah

Folks without homes, living out in the streets
And the drug habits some say, they just can't beat
Muggers and robbers, no place seems to be safe
But You'll be my protection every step of the way
And I want to say
Thank you Lord for all You've done for me, yeah

It could have been me (thank you)
Outdoors (thank you)
No food (thank you)
No clothes (thank you)
Or left alone (thank you)
Without a friend (thank you)
Or just another number (thank you)
With a tragic end (thank you)
But you didn't see fit to let none of these things be (thank you)
'Cause everyday by your power (thank you)
You keep on keeping me (thank you)
And I want to say (thank you)
For all You've done for me, hey, hey, hey

It could have been me (thank you)
Outdoors (thank you)
With no food (thank you)
And no clothes (thank you) 
Or left alone (thank you) 
Without a friend (thank you) 
Or just another number (thank you)
With a tragic end (thank you)
But you didn't see fit to let none of these things be (thank you)
'Cause everyday by Your power (thank you)
You keep on, you keep on keeping me, I wanna say
(Thank you Lord for all You've done for me)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I wanna say (Thank you Lord for all You've done for me) 
Thank you Jesus, yeah, yeah, yeah, I wanna say
