“Every beast of the forest is Mine. -Psalm 50:10 Lord I confess, I have nothing.
If I brought You a lei of welcome,
You could show me ten-thousand gardens. Every flower is Yours.
If I brought You a song of praise,
You would show me every note has its spring in You. You own the very air that carries the sound,
Even the air I breathe.
The riches bought by my work are Yours,
For You formed my hands,
And even my mind in my mother’s womb.
What can I offer that is not already Yours? Lord Adonai, I confess, I have nothing.
Though I bring the smallest thanks,
Please work in me a life lived in gratitude,
For without You, I am nothing,
And You, O God, are everything. Amen.
