Lyrics

VERSE 1
Oh I was born with all I needed
Came to this world complete and whole
Though I would journey long just to see it
Those three letters of my soul…

Like the sea in late November
My steady waves have seen the storm
But further down I just might remember
That slow peaceful way back home

CHORUS 1
When the years are all behind me,
and my time has past me by
Only thankfulness will find me,
I’ll be grateful by and by

VERSE 2
Oh I’ve had dreams and I’ve had vision
Some came true by fate (grace) or chance
I’ve known the sweetness of good fortune
And I’ve seen it all slip through my hands

CHORUS 2
When the years are all behind me,
and my time has past me by
Only thankfulness will find me,
I’ll be grateful by and by

VERSE 3
You’ve felt the fire of my fury
You’ve seen my demons and my doubts
But you see through my fear and my worry
Like the sun behind the clouds

CHORUS 3
When the years are all behind me,
and my time has past me by
Only thankfulness will find me,
I’ll be grateful by and by
When the years are all behind me,
and my time has past me by
Only thankfulness will find me,
I’ll be grateful by and by
I’ll be grateful by and by

ALTERNATE VERSE 3
The road is long and the road is winding
I’ve had my sorrows and my fun
But over my shoulder,
I see lanterns shining
Like what I came to do is done
