Gratitude Senryu
I give thanks for life
The day and hour of my birth
In America

I give thanks for light
For the dawn of each new day
To intone God's praise

I give thanks for love
The embrace of family
The joy of friendship

I give thanks for tests
Each meant to strengthen my faith
Reveal God's glory

I give thanks for night
Time for the body to rest
From daylight's duties

I give thanks for hope
Ability to achieve
The impossible

I give thanks for faith
Revealer of the Divine
Spirit's strengthener
