High above a mountain top,
Beneath a clear blue sky,
I sit and think about my life
And watch the birds fly by.

I gaze around in wonder,
At the beauty of the earth,
How I'm blessed to be here ...
So grateful for my birth.

I think about my struggles,
When life was going wrong.
But then, I thank my God,
He made me big and strong.

I thank Him for the blessings,
He's bestowed along the way,
And thank Him for the love
He's shown me, each new day.

As I bask in His protection,
I do my best to spread His Word.
And if I touch one other soul,
I know His voice was heard.
