HOW CAN WE THANK HIM FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE 

Key of E, CAPO 4

CHORUS
   C            G
He gave us our feet
                  C
And He made us to walk
               G
He gave us our tongue
        F         C
And He made us to talk
        C                 F
On Calvary He gave up His son
                   C
Oh how can we can thank Him
     G          C    F    C
For what He has done


(SPOKEN VERSE)
As we travel down this rode of life
We see many things that causes us to wonder
Now in the beginning
God created the Heaven and the Earth
And darkness was on the face of day
But God said let there be light and there was light
And later on this Earth
Man that He had created became so wicked
That He sent His only son
To save that which was lost
They scorned Him and they mocked Him
Because they didn't know what they were doing
And so on top of Calvary mountain
Nailed to the cross
He lifted his eyes toward heaven and said
Father I have completed the work
That Thou hath sent me to do


(CHORUS)
