I’m living this moment because of you.

I want to thank you, and praise you, too,

To tell the world that salvation is free.

There were times when I didn’t do right,

But you watched over me both day and night.

“ Lord, I know you’ve been so good”

Lord I know you’ve been so good to (2x)

You watched over Me All Night Long

Lord I know you’ve been so good

Jesus I’ve been wrong in my life and sometimes I even sin

But thank you for waking me up this morning

and letting me kneel down and Pray Again

I could have been dead sleeping in my grave

but Lord you made Old Death behave.

You’ve been good (2x)

You’ve been so good to me
