Thank You for My Wife

Track #2 of Umm…

Although this comes off as a love song, it’s really a prayer of thanks to God for my wife. The style is old-school, more like a hymn than much of anything else. I am accompanied by a virtual keyboard, bass, drums, oboe, clarinet and strings.


Life holds many problems
and much perplexity
And sometimes disappointments
can get the best of me
But to share in all my problems
there’s a lady fine and fair
Whom the Lord has brought into my life
just to show how much He cares

Thank you for my wife
She means so much to me
She’s the sweetheart of my life
And beautiful is she
Thank you, blessed Lord
For love and sweet accord
Thank you for this blessing
You have given me

Each day I look to heaven
and praise the Lord of love
For all that He has given
from His majesty above
My crown of earthly glory
is the one whose life I share
Who, no matter what the circumstance
stands behind me with her love and constant prayer

Thank you for my wife
She means so much to me
She’s the sweetheart of my life
And beautiful is she
Thank you, blessed Lord
For love and sweet accord
Thank you for this blessing
You have given me

Thank you for my wife (3x)
