You had given us the gift of life
In which it is not needed for us to be on a strife,
For each one has his own identity
And we are all waiting for eternity.
For you have bestowed us the power
To choose, and to be free as a flower,
To be happy with the fewer,
And to bow our heads lower.
Thank you for the gift of laughter
That makes our hearts lighter;
Thank you for the power to understand,
And for guiding us with your holy hand.
Thank you for the power to speak
For the gift of love that we seek;
Thank you for the power to listen
To the feelings of our own brethren.
Thank you for the power to envision
The truth about our mission;
Thank you for the power to pray
And for leading us to the right way.
Thank you, Lord, for everything
As we use them in our living;
Thank you for creating us as special beings
And for imparting on us special things.
For you had given us
An earthly life that won’t last.
Coming from our own spirit…
“When the time comes, we’re ready for it.”
