dear god lyrics – smokie norful

[verse 1:]
it feels so good to make it this far
and i didn’t think i could take it so long
there were days i wanted to quit
i said surely this is it
but i held on
and i watched as so called friends turn and walk away
it hurt so much i didn’t have words to say
but even when my day turns to nite and nothin seems just rite
lord i thank u for, for my life

[chorus:]
for my life, lord i thank u
for every victory in u i’ve seen
and all the moments i know it was u who kept me
so i thank u for, for my life

[verse 2:]
and i watched you take my family from there to here
and when times where a lil ruff god i know u were near
and the moments i thot i fail i was reminded of your nails
so i held on
and if i never live to see another day
there is nothing i would change or take away

i’ve had so many ups
that they far out way my downs
lord i thank u for my life
[bac up top to chorus]

[verse 3:]
i realized some didn’t make it…
i could’ve been one of the ones who lost my way
and there was times lord i know i almost went crazy
but i’m still here, with my life

[bac up top]

itr may not be all that i hope for
and every dream has not yet been realized
and to see your face one day god
i know it’s all gonna be worht it

yeaeaaa!
yeaaaa!

[verse 4:]
so i thank u
thank u for every mt. every valley god every thing u brought me thru
thank u!
i know i know it was u
jus wanna take the time to say thank u jesus for my life
