Not so good with words

20 08 2011

I’m a mathematician. I am not a linguist – sometimes I wonder why on earth I blog!

When it comes to prayer, sometimes I just can’t find any words, and in the last year or 2, when I have no words I seem to have reverted to the words of a song I learnt a very long time ago when I was a littlun in Sunday School.

It’s amazing how the words of a simple song I knew so long ago, just say so much so easily!

I found 2 links to the song, a youtube where some people have modernised it, and a website with a much more old skool style audio clip of it, so I’ll share both with you, and then the words as well 🙂

Audio version

Thank You Jesus,
Thank You Jesus,
Thank You Lord for loving me.
Thank You Jesus,
Thank You Jesus,
Thank You Lord for loving me.

You went to Calvary,
and there You died for me,
Thank You Lord for loving me.
You went to Calvary,
and there You died for me,
Thank You Lord for loving me.

You rose up from the grave,
to me new life You gave,
Thank You Lord for loving me.
You rose up from the grave,
to me new life You gave,
Thank You Lord for loving me.

It’s a great song 🙂 But half the time when I’m singing it by myself I sing Calgary instead of Calvary and then get distracted trying to figure out which one’s right!
