For the smiles that reach the heart
Laughter that touches the soul
The sun that shines so bright
The birds that sing during the day
And the crickets that keep the night alive
For the air given to us for free
Sleeping and waking without aches
Walking, talking, eating, drinking without difficulties
The ability to pass wastes away
Safety, sound health, wisdom and understanding
For the knowledge acquired through the course of time
The ability to discern honesty and sincerity of the heart and true intentions.
Houses over our heads
And clothes and shoes to protect us
And differentiate us from animals
The rain that waters the plant The challenges that are not above our abilities
The tenderness of our hearts even though devil tries to take control
For the children all over, who reflect your holiness and goodness
The light which has been brought to pierce the darkness
For many potentials buried in us for our use
For the glorification of your name
Being our pillar of cloud by day
And pillar of fire by night
Taking away our many afflictions
For the power given to us as gods
The comforter whom thou art sent to us
The joy and happiness which have been given to us
Placing us above angels who bestow your glory each day
The love, faithfulness and loyalty
Despite our frequent erring
Sovereign being, governor of the affairs of man
Ruler of the two kingdoms
The one who saves us to Himself
The King who crowns man king
No thought of man is hidden from you
Yet you request that we ask.
Today, we have taken this time to show how thankful we are for who you are to us.
