Title: Our Gratitude Makes Each Life Sweet
Meter: 8 8 8 8 8 8

1.
Our gratitude makes each life sweet
No matter what our bitter cup.
For joy can grow and be complete
If we will raise our voices up,

To thank the Lord for ev’ry day.
His glory will descend and stay.

2.
Our gratitude takes faith to grow
When storms and tempests gather near,
A thankful heart will always know
That God will never leave us here,

To strive against the gale alone.
He stands, our sure foundation stone.

3.
Our gratitude can change our lives
For good, despite affliction’s fire.
For gratitude forever strives
To treasure what our days require.

To see the worth as God refines
To trust His holy grand designs.

Hymn Text: I Pledge to Love

Title: I Pledge to Love
Meter: 8 6 8 6 8 8 8 8

1.
I do not know my neighbor’s load,
I do not know the pain,
Caused by their lone and dreary road,
Their heavy mortal chain.

Their lives are never mine to judge
I choose compassion as my guide.
I pledge to love, and will not budge,
For all must bear some test inside.

2.
I do not know my neighbors’ trials
I do not know their lack,
And weakness borne for many miles,
So that they bend and crack.

Their lives are never mine to judge
I choose compassion as my guide.
I pledge to love, and will not budge,
For all must bear some test inside.

3.
I do not know my neighbors’ heart
I do not know God’s plan,
That gives to ev’ry one a part,
That builds on what they can.

Their lives are never mine to judge
I choose compassion as my guide.
I pledge to love, and will not budge,
For all must bear some test inside.

I want a testimony of my very own.
I don’t want to wait until I’m fully grown.
