Lyrics by Demo Delgado

and Laurie Lamson (co-writing the verses – a writing first!)

Chorus

Give thanks for life
Give thanks for everything
Birds in the trees
Air we breathe

Give thanks for life
Thanks for everything
Birds and the bees
For the air we breathe

Give thanks
Give thanks
Give thanks
Give thanks

Verse 1

Appreciate the small gifts in life
And don’t you worry ‘bout a thing.
Life is change, we may not know the reasons
Your happiness is everything.

Live for today, not just tomorrow
‘Cause no one knows what it brings.
Heartaches and pain, no more sorrow
Let joy and love come enter in.

Chorus

Give thanks for life
Give thanks for everything
Birds in the trees
For the air we breathe

Give thanks
Give thanks

Give thanks
Give thanks

Verse 2

Don’t let the burdens of life drag you down
Stand up and hold your ground.
When you’re lost in the darkest of nights
Lights can still be found.
Stars are shining
Go find your silver lining.

When the journey of life gets you down
Blessings are all around you.
It’s true,
Jah blesses you.

Oh yeah now
Don’t you be blue.
Telling you…

Chorus

Give thanks
Give thanks

Give thanks
Give thanks

Give thanks for life
Thanks for everything.
