Thank you, Lord
My Father, you have carried me through
and loved me through my rebelliousness.
I praise you.
You have given me untold riches:
friends to love,
beauty to enjoy,
I praise you for life on this planet,
for trust between people,
and the unimaginable gift of the gospel.
Keep me thankful all my days,
that, against all the odds,
I may never lose sight
of hope and delight.
