O Lord I want to praise Thee for this body Thou hast made,
Upon its great unique design, in wonder, contemplate:
How wonderful, how intricate, what great complexity
Is found within each small detail of my anatomy!
Each part of me performs its role as was ordained by Thee:
Each single cell was made to dwell and work in harmony.
They all together make the whole: a massive company,
Complete to keep the Life within--what grand technology!
I've yet to fully understand the workings of my mind:
How great and mighty thoughts can be within a space confined!
My soul can feel, can hope, can trust, and can express to Thee
The raging tides I feel inside, of love and loyalty.
How excellently made am I, How blessed in every part!
Yet greater still then these is that Thou livest in my heart!
Without Thy presence in my soul, my life pulsates in vain
But Thou hast cleansed and made me whole and all Thyself, contain!
So Lord, I want to thank Thee for this body, soul and mind;
For giving me existence here, for giving life so fine!
Let all within me praise Thy name, Let all within me love,
Let all within me bless the Lord, who reigns in Heaven above!
