If I were a butterfly,
I’d thank You Lord for giving me wings.
If I were a robin in a tree,
I’d thank You Lord that I could sing.
If I were a fish in the sea,
I’d wiggle my tail and I’d giggle with glee,
But I just thank You Father for making me, me.
For you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile,
You gave me Jesus and you made me your child,
And I just thank you Father for making me, me.
If I were an elephant
I’d thank you Lord, by raising my trunk.
If I were a kangaroo,
You know I’d hop right up to you.
If I were an octopus,
I’d thank you Lord for my fine looks.
But I just thank you Father for making me, me.
If I were a wiggly worm,
I’d thank you Lord that I could squirm.
If I were a fuzzy, wuzzy bear,
I’d thank you Lord for my fuzzy, wuzzy hair.
If I were a crocodile,
I’d thank you Lord for my great smile.
But I just thank you Lord for making me, me.
