Thank Someone....

This song makes me smile. Really conveys a sense of peace. It's going to be alright.

Thank you, Jesus.

Don't You Want To Thank Someone - Andrew Peterson

 Can't you feel it in your bones
 Something isn't right here
 Something that you've always known
 But you don't know why

 'Cause every time the sun goes down
 We face another night here
 Waiting for the world to spin around
 Just to survive

 But when you see the morning sun
 Burning through a silver mist
 Don't you want to thank someone?
 Don't you want to thank someone for this?

 Have you ever wondered why
 In spite of all that's wrong here
 There's still so much that goes so right
 And beauty abounds?

 'Cause sometimes when you walk outside
 The air is full of song here
 The thunder rolls and the baby sighs
 And the rain comes down

 And when you see the spring has come
 And it warms you like a mother's kiss

 Don't you want to thank someone?
 Don't you want to thank someone for this?

 I used to be a little boy
 As golden as a sunrise
 Breaking over Illinois
 When the corn was tall

 Yeah, but every little boy grows up
 And he's haunted by the heart that died
 Longing for the world that was
 Before the Fall

 Oh, but then forgiveness comes
 A grace that I cannot resist
 And I just want to thank someone
 I just want to thank someone for this

 Now I can see the world is charged
 It's glimmering with promises
 Written in a script of stars
 Dripping from prophets' lips

 But still, my thirst is never slaked
 I am hounded by a restlessness
 I am eaten by this endless ache
 But still I will give thanks for this

 'Cause I can see it in the seas of wheat
 I can feel it when the horses run
 It's howling in the snowy peaks
 It's blazing in the midnight sun

 Just behind a veil of wind
 A million angels waiting in the wings
 A swirling storm of cherubim
 Making ready for the Reckoning

 Oh, how long, how long?
 Oh, sing on, sing on

 And when the world is new again
 And the children of the King
 Are ancient in their youth again
 Maybe it's a better thing

 A better thing
 To be more than merely innocent
 But to be broken then redeemed by love
 Maybe this old world is bent

 But it's waking up
 And I'm waking up

 'Cause I can hear the voice of one
 He's crying in the wilderness
 "Make ready for the Kingdom Come"
 Don't you want to thank someone for this?

 Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
 Hallalujah! Hallelujah!

 Come back soon
 Come back soon
