How can I thank you?

 

How can I thank you, Lord my God,
For everything you give?
For every pulse, and every breath,
And every day I live?

How can I thank you, Lord, my God,
For every drop of rain?
For every tree, and every fruit,
And every head of grain?

How can I thank you, Lord, my God,
For every falling leaf?
For every loss, and every death,
And every tide of grief?

How can I thank you, Lord, my God,
For every gift of love?
For every fear, and every wound, 
And every drop of blood?
