Be Grateful (written by Walter Hawkins) (recorded by Kurt Carr & The Kurt Carr Singers) Chorus: Be grateful. Be grateful. Verse 1: God has not promised me sunshine, that's not the way it's going to be; but a little rain mixed with God's sunshine, a little pain makes me appreciate the good times. Chorus Verse 2: God desires to fill your longings, every pain that you feel, He feels them, just like you; but He can't afford to let you feel only good, (then you can't appreciate the good times). Chorus Bridge: Oh, oh, oh, oh, ooh. (Be grateful, because there's someone worse off than you) Oh, oh, oh, oh, ooh. (Be grateful, there's someone else who'd love to be in your shoes). Vamp: Be grateful, be grateful. (repeat as desired) for it will be alright... Vamp 2: Alright, alright, alright, alright. Alright, alright, alright Ending: For it will be al... be grateful.
