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 night and nothin' seems just right
Lord, I thank You for, for my life

For my life, Lord, I thank You
For every victory in You I've seen
And all the moments I know it was You who kept me
So I thank You for, for my life

And I watched you take my family from there to here
And when times where a lil' rough, God, I know You were near
And the moments I thought I'd fail, I was reminded of your nails
So I held on

And if I never live to see another day
There is nothin' I would change or take away
I've had so many ups that they far outweigh my downs
Lord, I thank You for my life

For my life, Lord, I thank You
For every victory in You I've seen
And all the moments I know it was You who kept me
So I thank You for, for my life

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 knew I almost went crazy
But I'm still here with my life

For my life, Lord, I thank You
For every victory in You I've seen
And all the moments I know it was You who kept me
So I thank You for, for my life

It 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 worth it

Yeah, yeah

So I thank You, thank You for every mountain, every valley
God, everythin' You brought me through, thank You
I know, I know it was You
Just wanna take the time to say thank You Jesus, for my life
