"For My Life"

(Art adapted from "Birth of the Chosen One")

Wado, Unetlanvhi.

What am I going
to thank You
for today?

I have so much
to thank You for
every day.

(And I will
thank You
for eternity!)

What is the thanks
rising up in my heart
today, Creator?

I will thank You for my life—
for the life that is mine
and no other’s

I often complain
for I have mountaintops
and I have valleys

And I am often wanting
But You are always giving!
And You never, ever shame me!

Wado, Unetlanvhi!

This life You've given me
is Your precious gift
Every moment of it

I am never alone in a valley
and You bring me out of each one
and set my feet on high places.

So I will thank You today
for my yesterday, for my today,
and for my tomorrow.

Ugodidi Wado!
