Sunday's Song- Thank You For Giving To The Lord

        I heard this song last night at church.  It really touched me, so I wanted to share it with y'all.
          Thank You For Giving To The Lord
         
I dreamed I went to Heaven, you were there with me. We walked upon the streets of gold beside the Crystal Sea. We heard the angels singing, then someone called your name. You turned and saw this young man, and he was smiling as he came. He said, "Friend you may not know me now," and then he said, "But wait - You used to teach my Sunday School, when I was only eight. And every week you would say a prayer before the class would start. And one day when you said that prayer, I asked Jesus in my heart."

Chorus

Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am a life that was changed. Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am so glad you gave.

Then another man stood before you, he said "Remember the time, A missionary came to your church, His pictures made you cry. You didn't have much money but you gave it anyway. Jesus took that gift you gave And that's why I'm in Heaven today"

Chorus

Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am a life that was changed. Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am so glad you gave.

One by one they came, far as your eyes could see. Each life somehow touched by your generosity. Little things that you had done, sacrifices that you made, They were unnoticed on this earth In Heaven now proclaimed.

Chorus

Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am a life that was changed. Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am so glad you gave.

And I know up in Heaven you're not supposed to cry But I am almost sure there were tears in your eyes As Jesus took your hand and you stood before the Lord He said "My child look around you, Great is your reward."

Chorus

Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am a life that was changed. Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am so glad you gave, I am so glad you gave.

    That is a neat song, isn't it? I think it's encouraging because sometimes we feel like our efforts don't mean much. We may be surprised when we get to Heaven, huh?
