We give thanks , Oh God,
For who you are.
For all that we know about.
We thank you too
For all that we haven't seen.

We give thanks, Oh God,
For the friends we have,
For those who will be friends,
In the future.

We give thanks, Oh God,
For the desire
That you put in our hearts
To be more like you.

We give thanks, Oh God ,
For opportunity
To be more than we are
Because you made us that way.

We give thanks, Oh God,
For being permitted
To have a place in your plan
To heal the world.
