Live to thank god

By Inico Ignaci Raj

I live my whole life thanking God
For me He gave such love
My plans and ambitions are all in his hands
I live my whole life thanking God

We may spend our lives seeking only pleasure
Or filling our pockets with the treasure
Living for ourselves and loving nobody else
And having no thought of thanking God

I once lived my life that way
Then God spoke sweet words, on a fine day
He made such a change that I thank him forever
For He shunned all my sins

I used to live life like the nine lepers
Seeking my own pleasure
Living life without a thought of thanking Christ
Until I saw the tenth leper’ act.
