Here's what I found

I was lost but You knew where to find me
I was hungry You were bread for my soul
I was thirsty and You gave living water
You were my shelter when I had no place to go

That's why sometimes I just want to praise You
Sometimes just to speak Your name
Sometimes I just want to thank You
Without asking You for a thing
Oh sometimes I lift my hands to You
And sometimes all I do is cry
Everything that I have I owe to You, Lord
And Calvary's the reason why

When I think of the love that You've given
Lord when I think of the price You paid for me
Then the trials on earth, they just seem like nothing
When they're compared to dark Calvary

Oh, sometimes I just want to praise You
Sometimes just to speak Your name
Sometimes I just want to thank You
Without asking you for a thing
Oh sometimes I lift my hands to You
Then sometimes all I do is cry
Everything that I have I owe to You, Lord
And Calvary's the reason why

Yes, sometimes I just want to praise You
Sometimes just to speak Your name
Sometimes I just want to thank You
Without asking you for a thing
Oh sometimes I lift my hands to You
Then sometimes all I do is cry
Everything that I have I owe to You, Lord
And Calvary's the reason why

Everything that I have I owe to You, Lord
And Calvary's the reason why

God bless,
Steve

I've had a good life here below. and the Lord has blessed me so. Oh but sometimes I just want to go home. Friends and family I have down here, and their love I hold so dear. Oh but sometimes I just want to go home.

Home has never looked so good to me, tears are gone and spirits they are free.and when I find I'm almost fallen, I see tomorrow and it keeps me going. There's no turning back I've just got to make it home.

There's a Savior I've never seen. I want to thank Him for all that He's done for me. Oh sometimes I just want to go home. Where the streets are clear as crystal that my feet are longing to walk on oh sometimes I just want to go home.

There's no turning back, I've just got to make it home.
