VERSE ONE (LEAD):
I’ve got so much to thank God for:
So many wonderful blessings,
And so many open doors;
A brand new mercy
Along with each new day.
That’s why I praise You,
And, for this, I give You praise.

CHORUS ONE (CHOIR
PARENTHETICAL IN UNISON):
For waking me up this morning
(That’s why I praise You);
For starting me on my way
(That’s why I praise You);
For letting me see the sunshine
(That’s why I praise You)
Of a brand new day
(Oh, Oh, Oh);
A brand new mercy
(That’s why I praise You)
Along with each new day
(That’s why I praise You).
That’s why I praise You.

(CHOIR IN HARMONY)
For this, I give You praise.

CHORUS TWO (CHOIR
PARENTHETICAL; INVERT)
You’re Jehovah Jireh
(That’s why I praise You);

You’ve been my Provider
(That’s why I praise You).
So many times You’ve met my needs
(That’s why I praise You).
So many times You’ve rescued me
(OH, OH, OH~~~).
I want to thank You for the blessings
(That’s why I praise You)
You give to me each day.

(CHOIR CONTINUES IN UNISON)
That’s why I praise You.
(HARMONY; LONG, HIGHER NOTE
AT END)
For this, I give You praise.

VAMP (LOW, HUSHED HARMONY):
For every mountain
You’ve brought me over;
For every trial
You’ve seen me through;
For every bless* [instead of blessing],
Hallelujah!
For this, I give You praise!
(REPEAT BY GLISSANDOING UP TO
THE INVERSION)

(MODULATE AS DIRECTED)

ENDING:
For this, I give You praise!

RESOLUTION—PRAI-AISE!)
