Who will say amen unless we offer praise?
Who will say amen unless we offer thanks?
Who will say amen unless we say please?
You know before we ask.
You give before we ask.
You were before us,
are now, and ever will be.
Can we be like children and yet
put away childish things?
With You, all things are possible.
