What You’ve Done So Far
Is to free my soul from sin
Your life was the price You paid
To cleanse me from within.
What You’ve done so far, my Father
Is to love me as Your own
A love unconditional and freely offered
It’s transformed me—given me hope.
What You’ve done so far as Provider
Is to bless me abundantly
Family, friends—so many loved ones
My heart overflows with thanksgiving.
What You’ve done so far as Rescuer
Is to save me from myself
You kept me safe within Your arms
Even when I denied needing Your help.
What You’ve done so far as Healer
Is to touch me powerfully
Though the pain still often surfaces
You’re right here—comforting me.
What You’ve done so far, my Dearest Friend
Is to teach me loyalty
Despite my fickle heart and changing moods
You’re always here—You never leave.
What You’ve done so far as Shepherd
Is to tend me with such care
Though I’m wayward and stubborn,
You lead me, lovingly keeping me near.
What You’ve done so far as teacher
Is to use the school of pain
The lessons learned have hurt, yet honed me
My suffering has brought me gain.
What You’ve done so far as Grace-Giver
Is to free my mind from guilt
You’re patiently teaching me a different way
And I know I’m learning still.
What You’ve done so far has changed me—
I’m not where I thought I’d be
Yet Your plan is better always
Make me content to follow Thee.
What You’ve done so far, my God Almighty
Words cannot adequately express
This verbose writer with ready pen
Is speechless in Your holiness.
What You’ve done these thirty years
My mind can scarcely comprehend
By Your grace You are my Savior,
Shepherd, Teacher, Rescuer, Friend.
Father, God Almighty, Healer, Provider—all You are
No matter what You’ve got in store for me
I’ll remain amazed at all of
What You’ve done so far.
“Praise the Lord. Praise the Lord, O my soul. I will praise the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.” Ps. 146: 1-2 NIV
“When my heart my grieved and my spirit embittered, I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before you. Yet I am always with you; you hold me by your righteous right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever…But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.” Ps. 73:21-26, 28 NIV
“But He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Cor. 12:9-10 NIV
