Everything That We Have

Everything That We Have

Ev’rything that we have,
Ev’rything that we are,
Ev’ry moment is a blessing from above.
It’s endless love that we breathe.
It’s endless love that we receive.
What has freely come we now let freely go.

1. Working hard to survive is no guarantee.
For the deck is always stacked against the poor.
If we’d use just what we need.
Reject the creeping cancer of greed.
Like a miracle, the hungry could be fed.

2. May we show gratitude in the way that we live.
Not with pompous prayers and not with fancy feasts.
Imagine how the world should be.
Then take a risk to build this dream.
That’s the offering that God is asking for.
