I give you praise today
For what you have done,
For what you will do
Indeed, for what you are doing.
I give you laughing, joyful, giddy praise.
I give you a deep and grateful sigh.
I give you a tear of relief.
For your life within me is life
And my life within you is grace.
The hope I hold tentatively, hopefully
In the deepest corners of my heart
You hold with me, as you fill even those dark corners
With an assurance that moves from hope to promise.
It is that deep assurance
That gives me strength to move
Out of my corners and into this day.
When I fall down, when I get up,
You are there.
