Thanks Be To God

Thanks be to God for God is good.

Let the soft touch hand drummers say
God’s goodness endures forever

Let the finger style stringists say
God is the tonic and the passing note
God’s goodness endures forever

Let the loofa-loving spa dogs say
God’s goodness goes on and on
rock steady forever

Thanks be to God for God is the greatest
God’s goodness goes on and on

Let those who bandage the lepers say
God’s goodness endures forever

Let the horn players say
God is the greatest the best
For God swings forever

Let the oud masters say
Peace is the engine of beauty
God plays the modes forever

Thanks be to God for you
For your hair complements your face
God is the greatest
forever
