|R- God Loves a Cheerful Giver
Give it all you've got,
He loves to hear you laughing
when your in an awkward spot.
When the odds add up against you,
It's time to stop and sing,
Praise God, to praise Him is a joyous thing.
1- Peter always made a fuss
Peter was impetuous
He knew hard times when he denied his Lord.
But hardly had he fallen
When he sat right up began again,
Christ named him the rock,
As his reward.
2- Jonah was a gloomy sort
He always had a sad report
He ran from God, he ran and he set sail.
His journeys end was quiet abrupt,
A fish came by and swallowed him up,
He spent three dark and dreary days
Inside a whale.
3- Holy Job was richly blessed
He lost it all but stood the test
For Job was steadfast in his misery.
God gives to me, he takes away
Blessed be the name of God this day
And he was doubly blessed for his fidelity
