The retirement of a pastor, senior graduation and a dedication to a much-loved parishioner are just a few of the circumstances suitable for this wonderful setting based on the first chapter of Philippians. This lovely expression of gratitude and appreciation is sure to be used over and over. This anthem is Donna Butler’s all-time best seller.
Available through the publisher and choral music distributors.
Text based on Philippians 1
I thank my God when I remember you
for He has blessed my life with yours
With every prayer of mine for you
I’m filled with joy;
for I hold you in my heart.
And I pray that your love may abound yet more in knowledge
and in all judgment; That you may approve excellent things;
That you may be sincere being filled with the
fruits of righteousness unto the glory and praise of God.
Grace to you and peace to you,
From God, our Father, Christ our Lord.
Oh, I thank my God.
I thank my God when I remember you.
