The God Minute: Song About Gratitude

Father Ron Hoye, C.M. explains, “This is a song that pretty much sums up the entire path of the spiritual life; it highlights the one essential foundation from which everything about our faith is realized– an attitude that Jesus himself modeled time and time again and St. Paul said was the key to heaven: Gratitude.”


GRATITUDE by Benjamin William Hastings

[Verse 1]
All my words fall short
I got nothing new
How could I express
All my gratitude?

[Verse 2]
I could sing these songs
As I often do
But every song must end
And You never do

So I throw up my hands
And praise You again and again
‘Cause all that I have is a
Hallelujah, hallelujah
And I know it’s not much
But I’ve nothing else fit for a King
Except for a heart singing
Hallelujah, hallelujah

[Verse 3]
I’ve got one response
I’ve got just one move
With my arm stretched wide
I will worship You

[Verse 4]
Come on my soul don’t you get shy on me
lift up your song you got a lion
inside of those lungs
get up and praise the Lord

    I love this song! I am a missionary Ad Gentes in Haifa, Israel. I’m wondering how I can get a copy of it?
