A ‘grace’ from Pakistan

God, we thank you for all your gifts.

This day, this night,
these fruits, these flowers,
these trees, these waters—
with all these treasures you have endowed us.

The heat of the sun, the light of the moon,
the songs of the birds and the coolness of the breeze,
the green, green grass like a mattress of velvet,
all owe their existence to your grace.

Dear God,
may we forever breathe the breath of your love
and every moment be aware
of your presence above.
