My God, I give you thanks from a grateful heart because:
You saw me when I didn’t see you.
You knew me when I knew you not.
You heard my cries when I was alone,
and you forgot me not.
You saved me from my despair when
no one else seemed to care.
You gave me hope so I would be able to cope.
You loved me when I felt dirty and ashamed.
You said, “For what others have done to you, you are not to blame.”
You carried me when I was weak because my world looked so bleak.
You freed me from the bondage of hate and brought me to the Light of My Fate.
You gave me the grace to forgive and said,
“Now you can really live.”
I give you my love, my will and my heart because
you mended my broken heart.
