Thanks for Wounded Hands and Side

{Image by The Sweetest Occasion}

My husband is sharing a Thanksgiving hymn he reworked on his blog today. I love it so much, I could not help but share it here. 


From Jake's blog...

“Thanks to God for My Redeemer” was written by August L. Storm in 1891; I wrote a new tune for it and (along with my friend Dan on mandolin) played it for Thanksgiving weekend services a couple years ago.  

Thanks for fair and pleasant springtime
Thanks for dark and stormy fall
Thanks for tears by now forgotten
Thanks for grace, Thy sovereign call
Thanks for roses by the wayside
Thanks for thorns their stems contain
Thanks for home and thanks for fireside
Thanks for hope, that sweet refrain

Thanks for pain, and thanks for pleasure
Thanks for comfort in despair
Thanks for grace that none can measure
Thanks for love beyond compare
Thanks to God for my Redeemer
Thanks for all Thou dost provide
Thanks for blood poured out to save me
Thanks for wounded hands and side

Thanks for prayers that Thou hast answered
Thanks for what Thou dost deny
Thanks for storms that I have weathered
Thanks for all Thou dost supply
Thanks for joy and thanks for sorrow
Thanks that Thou will all redeem
Thanks for hope in the tomorrow
Thanks through all eternity
