Thank you for giving to the lord
Song by Ray Boltz
I dreamed I went to heaven. You were there with me. We walked along the streets of gold, beside the crystal sea. We heard the angels singing, then someone called your name. You turned and saw a young man, he was smiling as he came. He said friend, you may not know me now, but then he said but wait. You used to teach my Sunday School, when I was only eight. Every week you would say a prayer, before the class would start. One morning when you said that prayer, I asked Jesus in my heart. 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. And 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 the gift you gave, and that's why I'm here today. 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, as far as the eye could see. Each one somehow touched, by your generosity. Little things that you had done, sacrifices made. Unnoticed on the earth, heaven now proclaims. And I know up in heaven, that you're not supposed to cry. But I was almost sure, there were tears in your eyes. As Jesus took your hand, and you stood before the Lord— And He said, My child, look around you…. For great is your reward. 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.
Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
