Lyrics

Thank God for Dogs by Lori Nicholson

 

Verse 1

When I looked for love…I saw you

Lying by his side…To take away the loneliness

Of love lost over time

With soft fur beneath a hand…As one life surely ebbs

Be not afraid…I’m with you

Until the very end

 

Chorus

God made a dog

Love made with four paws

God made a dog

A friend both great and small

God made a dog

 

Verse 2

When I looked for trust…I saw you

Beside the wounded man……The soldier scarred from in and out

Held your leash within his hand

Oh, such a tiny dog….And such a noble task

To mend the wounded hearted…..And to make the mending last

 

Chorus

God made a dog

Love made with four paws

God made a dog

A friend both great and small

God made a dog

 

Bridge

All that is good

And all that is true

I found in you…I found in you

A friend …A teacher

Protector …And a seeker

With a love so deep…you’ve made my life so sweet

 

Thank God for dogs
