Thank You For Giving to the Lord – Top Christian Song and Video Tribute to the Billy Graham Ministry by Bill and Gloria Gaither
One of my favorite Christian songs from several years ago is Thank you For Giving to the Lord by Ray Boltz.

This particular occasion for the song is at a Bill and Gloria Gaither gathering to give tribute to the Billy Graham Ministry.

I am humbled and challenged to consider the reception I’ll have in heaven. Who, if anyone, will thank me for giving to the Lord? How about you?
