Lyrics

1. We were wandring in the de --
sert with our souls so starved and weak; We were hun --
gry for a homeland we did not
know how to seek,
But we lifted up our voices to the on --
ly one who hears and the God of mercy came
and brought us near. We were locked
Oh give thanks
to the LORD for his love endures fore --
ver! We were wandering and lost, and our Father brought us home
To a safe dwelling place, to a feast of joy and laugh --
ter. Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good.
We were fools
good. Oh give thanks
2. We were locked out of the gar --
den, and our backs bent down with pain. In the sha --
dow of death's darkness, we were slaves
to sin and blame.
And we cried out in our labor to the on --
ly one who hears and the God of mercy wiped
away our tears.
to the LORD for his love endures fore --
ver! We were wandering and lost, and our Father brought us home
To a safe dwelling place, to a feast of joy and laugh --
ter. Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good.
We were fools
good. Oh give thanks
3. We were fools in our rebe --
llion, with our hunger strike of pride We were sick
and growing closer to the death
we should have died
Then He heard of our condition, and He called
us by our names and the God of glory took
away our shame!
to the LORD for his love endures fore --
ver! We were wandering and lost, and our Father brought us home
To a safe dwelling place, to a feast of joy and laugh --
ter. Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good.
We were fools
good. Oh give thanks
4. We were far out on the o --
cean, making wealth and chasing dreams; But the waves
of great destruction brought us tremb --
ling to our knees.
Then we cried like drunken sailors to the on --
ly one who hears, and the God of comfort took
away our tears.
to the LORD for his love endures fore --
ver! We were wandering and lost, and our Father brought us home
To a safe dwelling place, to a feast of joy and laugh --
ter. Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good.
We were fools
good. Oh give thanks
