  Teach Me To Slow Down



Teach me to slow down, Lord
As I travel this narrow road
Help me to pay attention
To the blessings you bestow

Your mercies are tender
And new every day
I really don't deserve these blessings
But You give them anyway

Thank You for my family
They mean so much to me
The church You gave me to attend
And a work for me to do

Help me notice the little things
Like the smile on another's face
And the kind words I hear
When I'm having a bad day.

Help me to be thankful for what I have
And not to look at what I don't
Please teach me to slow down, Lord
As I travel this narrow road!
