Thank you God for making me
And for breaking me
When I need to be broken.
Thank you God for shaking me up
And then taking me up
To these wonders unspoken.
Thank you God for this gray rainy day
For these children who play
Like it’s worth celebrating.
Thank you god for the circular way
That it all slips away
To a new day awaiting.
Thank you God for the wind in the trees
For the deep mysteries
That they whisper in my ears.
Thank you God for the sound of your seas
When it puts me at ease
Just to know that you’re so near.
Thank you God for the song in my heart
For your breath in my art
To move people and mountains.
Thank you God for the song in my soul
For my losing control
When I drink at your fountain.
