Gratitude

With what my God can I your Love repay,

Since by your Love, to Love at all is known?

For half your Love I’d give the world away

Yet may I pay for Love with Love your own?

What have I, then, that I have not by loan?

Let none deny my dire poverty

Lest in my heart I place myself enthroned

Forgoing You as True necessity.

So now I give what you first gave to me.

To pay my boundless debt of your pure Love

A life of endless generosity

While trusting still in Strength that’s from above.

I give in thanks what I received from You

So in my thanks my debt I this renew.
