Thank you

 

Lord,

Thank you for each truth you taught,
Each step you took,
Each gift you brought.

Thank you for each word you spoke,
Each healing touch,
Each rule you broke.

Thank you for each sign you gave,
Each tale you told,
Each soul you saved.

Thank you for each act of love,
Each wound received,
Each drop of blood.

You heal my wounds,
And give me back my health
.

Slowly, slowly,
You wipe away the tears that flow
From how I was brought up –
So many years of physical
And mental pain.

And slowly, slowly,
You restore my heart
And soul,
So I can live
To the full.

Lord,
You made the world,
And gave us your Son.
You forgive our sins,
And heal our wounds.
You pour out your Spirit,
And offer us eternal life.

What’s more –
You do all this
Despite knowing
Exactly how we behave
Towards each other,
And towards you.

Now,
That’s what I call
Unconditional love!
