Thankful Lyrics

I ran across an old box of letters
while I was bagging up some clothes for Goodwill
you know I had to laugh that the same old struggles
that plagued me then are plaguing me still
I know the road is long from the ground to glory
but a boy can hope he's getting some place
but you see I'm running from the very clothes I'm wearing
and dressed like this I'm fir for the chase

no, there is none righteous
not one who understands
there is none who seek God
no not one, no not one

Chorus 1
I am thankful that I'm incapable
of doing any good on my own

'cause we're all stillborn and dead in our trangressions
we're shackled up to the sin we hold so dear
so what part can I play in the work of redemption
I can't refuse, I cannot add a thing

'cause I am just like Lazarus and I can hear your voice
I stand and rub my eyes and walk to you
because I have no choice

Chorus 2
I am thankful that I'm incapable
of doing any good on my own
I'm so thankful that I'm incapable
of doing any good on my own

it's by grace I have been saved
through faith that's not my own
it is the gift of God and not by words
lest anyone should boast
