Be Grateful Written by Walter Hawkins Intro: Ooh, grateful Ooh, grateful 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 (a little rain) mixed with God's own sunshine, a little pain (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 (just like you); but He can't afford to let you feel only good (only good), if you can't appreciate the good times. Chorus Vamp: Be grateful. Ending: For it will be alright.
