Nothing without you

 

Father,

We are nothing without you.
You make us, and you give us life and breath.

You send us joy and sorrow, guilt and shame;
Sickness, health, forgiveness, loss, grief, death.

And, beyond all price, you send your Son
To die for us; you give your Spirit, too,

So we can unite at last, as one,
For truly, we are nothing without you.
