Thank You God For This Place
Lyrics by Marta Johnson, Music by: Dan Lueders.

It’s the 35th year, time to look back.
To see how the first church had an impact.
It’s gonna go fast, let’s stay on track, while we run the race

Bill met a man named Doctor “B.”
A well-known teacher and fine clergy.
They dreamed of what our church could be, could be some day

There’s a vision that we all share.
We worship, we study, we join in prayer.
There is nothing like the church.
Nothing can compare!

Thank you God. Thank you God. Thank you God.
Thank You God for this place.
Thank you God. Thank you God. Thank you God.
For this place.

We got our start ’cause Bill had drive!
They sold tomatoes to keep the dream alive!
It all began in seventy-five!
By God’s grace

They came to Palatine one-by-one.
It’s amazing what God has done.
It wasn’t easy but it sure was fun!
Thank You for this place

There’s a vision that we all share.
We worship, we study, we join in prayer.
There is nothing like the church.
Nothing can compare!

Thank you God. Thank you God. Thank you God.
Thank You God for this place.
Thank you God. Thank you God. Thank you God.
For this place.

Well we’ve gotten quite big since the those days.
When you think about it you’ll be amazed.
We’re like the first church in many ways
Thank You God for this place

We can be the church for everyone we know.
The more we tell the more the we will grow.
Sharin’ in this is the way to go.
Thank You for this place

There’s a vision that we all share.
We worship, we study, we join in prayer.
There is nothing like the church.
Nothing can compare!

Thank you God. Thank you God. Thank you God.
Thank You God for this place.
Thank you God. Thank you God. Thank you God.
For this place.
