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.
