lyrics

Coretta we love you, and Rosa we love you;
And, we thank you for letting the Lord use you.
Through the good times and the bad times
You were right there at the right time,
And, we thank you for letting the Lord use you over and over again.

Coretta, you and Martin set out to be a loving family. Yeah, yeah.
With many dreams as far as the eye could see, what would be the destiny
Along the way, boom, here comes God with a mission that would be real hard.
Yet, ya answered the call, and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Coretta we love you, and Rosa we love you;
And, we thank you for letting the Lord use you.
Through the good time and the bad times
You were right there at the right time,
And, we thank you for letting the Lord use you over and over again.

Rosa, that day on the bus, ya just had it. Ya just had enough.
Tired of runnin and playin it off. Little did ya know you’d blown the roof off.
Courage came to many because of the little lady with the sweet name…
Rosa, Rosa, Rosa, Rosa yeah, yeah.
It was had. It was so, so hard. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Coretta we love you, and Rosa we love you;
And, we thank you for letting the Lord use you.
Through the good time and the bad times
You were right there at the right time,
And, we thank you for letting the Lord use you over and over again.

Just want to thank you. Just want to thank you.
I just want to thank you. I want to say thanks.
I Just want to thank you. Just want to thank you.
Oh, yeah. Just want to thank you. Just want to thank you
Just want to thank you. Thank you for caring.
Thank you for loving. Thank you for your obedience to God.
Thank you, oh. Thank you, oh, yeah.

Coretta we love you, and Rosa we love you;
And, we thank you for letting the Lord use you.
Through the good times and the bad times
You were right there at the right time,
And, we thank you for letting the Lord use you over and over again.
