AIN'T GOD GOOD?

Jean Dunham

FOR FORTY LONG YEARS
GOD'S PEOPLE JOURNEYED IN THE WILDERNESS
SEARCHING FOR CANAAN,
THAT  BLESSED PROMISED LAND
THEY NEVER WENT TOO HUNGRY
NOR THEY NEVER GOT TOO THIRSTY
BUT THE MORE THAT GOD KEPT BLESSING THEM
THE MORE THEY WOULD COMPLAIN

AIN'T GOD GOOD TO GIVE US SO MANY BLESSINGS
UNDESERVING, THAT'S WHAT WE ARE
WE OUGHT TO THANK HIM, LOVE AND PRAISE HIM
A LITTLE MORE TODAY
AND A WHOLE LOT MORE TOMORROW

IN THE TIME THAT WE LIVE
SO MANY ARE UNTHANKFUL
AND ANY MORE THEY FAIL TO SEE
THAT GOD HAS GIVEN ALL
NEVER HAVING TIME FOR GOD,
THEY'RE ALWAYS BUSY WORKING
TO PAY FOR CARS, NEW HOMES, TVS',
AND CARPETS WALL TO WALL

AIN'T GOD GOOD TO GIVE US SO MANY BLESSINGS
UNDESERVING, THAT'S WHAT WE ARE
WE OUGHT TO THANK HIM, LOVE AND PRAISE HIM
A LITTLE MORE TODAY
AND A WHOLE LOT MORE TOMORROW
