A simple prayer... in a song

Here's one that we like to sing at our family sing songs, sung by the man who wrote it, Kris Kristofferson, a man who hasn't had the easiest life. It's one of those little gratitude prayers to God that says, basically, "What have I ever done to deserve the goodness in my life." The thing is, we don't have to do anything. God just loves, period. Even so, I feel I'd like to respond to that love more wholeheartedly. So here's my own third verse:

Thank you, Lord
for your love all around
in the sights and the sounds
of our lives here on earth.
Teach us, Lord,
to be loving and true
show us what we can do
to give your mercy birth.

+Amen.
