O God, Lord of absolute mercy, we kneel in thanks for your love.
Accept our gratitude for bringing us out of ignorance, and for your patience with our willful ways.
In despair we cursed the world.
We blamed others for our misery.
But your light led us out of suffering and rescued us from death.
You taught us to love and understand each other.
You gave us the power of Johrei to heal our distress.
Your abundant blessings on us, unhappy sinners, never cease.
O God, we, but grains of sand on the shore, give you our boundless thanks.
We offer ourselves, soul and flesh, for the fulfillment of your plan.
Give us your grace and guide us in our mission, so that the whole world may know of your love.
