    Lyrics

    Thank You

    I dreamed I went to heaven
    And you were there with me
    We walked upon the streets of gold
    Beside the crystal sea
    We heard these angels singing
    Then someone called your name
    You turned and saw this young man
    And he was smiling as he came
    And he said friend you may not know me now
    And then he said, but wait
    You used to teach my Sunday School
    When I was only eight
    And every week you would say a prayer
    Before the class would start
    And one day when you said that prayer
    I asked Jesus in my heart

    CHORUS
    Thank you for giving to the Lord
    I am a life that was changed
    Thank you for giving to the Lord
    I am so glad you gave

    Then another man stood before you
    And said remember the time
    A missionary came to your church
    And his pictures made you cry
    You didn't have much money
    But you gave it anyway
    Jesus took the gift you gave
    And that's why I'm here today

    CHORUS (repeat)

    One by one they came
    Far as your eyes could see
    Each life somehow touched
    By your generosity
    Little things that you had done
    Sacrifices you made
    They were unnoticed on the earth
    In heaven now proclaimed

    And I know that up in heaven
    You're not supposed to cry
    But I am almost sure
    There were tears in your eyes
    As Jesus took your hand
    And you stood before the Lord
    He said, my child look around you
    For great is your reward

    CHORUS (repeat)

    I am so glad you gave.

      I've heard that Ray wrote the song about the Gideon ministry. My wife was a Sunday School teacher and a member of the Gideon Auxilliary and the song meant a great deal to her. We had the song sung at her memorial service and 720 Bibles were donated in her memory. They will continue to introduce others to Christ for years to come. Thank you Ray and may God bless you!

      After reviewing the song and the lyrics, the first chorus he says, "I have a life", the 2nd chorus he says,"I am a life". Just listen close and you will hear the difference the first time he sings the chorus and the 2nd time. I am studying this song so I can sing it at an event and I would like to get the words correct, so if you think that is not the case please let me know. Thanks.

      Alexis I am sorry to say but the lyrics are actually "I am" not "I have", because if you actually listen to the story of the song the people speaking to him are telling him that their lives were changed because of him, they are the life, thus "I am" if you don't believe listen to the video embedded to the right of the lyrics and watch his lips as he is singing you will see him say "am" not "have". Before you criticize someone you should insure the validity of your critic as I did with you I am currently listening to the song as I type to you here.

      I think you're kind of missing the point of this song. It's an encouragement for us to live a life in service to our lord. And understand that even our everyday faithful actionscan affect somone in tremendous ways. It's an encouragement for us to step up to the plate, and serve Him!
