The hand of the Lord is upon me
I am an heir of His Grace
My life is safe in the palm of his hands
I’m blessed and highly favored all my days

Pre-Chorus:
Day by day his Goodness chases me
Through and through his Mercy is renewed
Time and time again I see his Favor
In this life, I’ve seen His faithfulness

Refrain:
Many, many, many blessings I have seen
Of what the Lord has done
Of what the Lord has done for me (Repeat)

The joy of the Lord is within me
I’m overflowing with his endless love
My hands are his instruments of grace and peace
To bring life, and kindness all my days

(Pre-Chorus)

(Refrain)

When He brings life
He brings it in abundance
When He brings peace, it passes all understanding
And when He loves us
He loves us so completely
When He restores us he restores a thousand fold

(Refrain)

I… testify, I testify x?

(Refrain)

When He brings life
He brings it in abundance
When He brings peace, it passes all understanding
And when He loves us
He loves us so completely
When He restores us he restores a thousand fold

(Refrain)
