Because life is a gift we live thankfully,
Savour what we have,
Pray for what we need.
No longer hurried, distracted or worried,
We walk through each moment with God.
Because everything is a gift, we live with open hands,
Tread lightly on the earth,
Share freely our homes and our things.
No longer restlessly chasing identity,
We'll be known by our love not our logos.
Because giving is a gift, we give generously,
Give ourselves deeply to family and community,
Give joyfully to those in need.
No longer caught in the consumer dream,
We'll invest in the kingdom of love.
