Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.  Psalm 100:4
 We enter into His gates,
Thankful for another day
Blessing His Holy name
To which our lips give praise

His courts show forth His glory
His house is full of love
His children lift their hearts
In praise to God above

Forgiveness lifts our burdens
Cleansing brings us nearer to Thee
Mercy embraces our souls
Jesus has set us free
Serving the Lord with gladness
Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb
Thankful for what He’s done
Being held by God’s strong hand
An open door to Heaven
The day we’ll all go home
Entering the gates of Glory
Walking the streets of gold

Praising will be forever
Singing with the redeemed
Thankful for being in Heaven
Hallelujah to our King!  
I am so thankful God looked down from heaven and saw I needed a Savior, a Redeemer. I’m so thankful He not only looked down from His throne above, yet did something to help me, to save me. He knew the condition I was in, and He knew there was only one way to rescue me from the eternal separation from Him. I never realized I had a problem until the day God opened my spiritual eyes. The Holy Spirit revealed to me that I was a sinner, isn’t that strange, I never really thought about it until then.  I lived in the world and enjoyed the things of the world. But the Bible says: whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.  (James 4:4) Wow, I was God’s enemy before I was His child. God’s enemy, yet He loved me so. Now that’s something to be thankful for! Yet, not only that…when I was His enemy, I was reconciled to God by the death of his Son, and saved by His life. God loved me, and while I was yet a sinner, Christ died for me. That’s something to be very thankful for. Oh the love of God! Now I am justified by Christ’s blood, and saved from the wrath of God. How can I not have a heart and lips that praise Him? He has done it all, and I am so thankful!
