Work, gratitude, prayer – Wendell Berry

Be thankful and repay
Growth with good work and care.
Work done in gratitude,
Kindly, and well, is prayer.
You did not make yourself,
Yet you must keep yourself
By use of other lives.
No gratitude atones
For bad use or too much.

From- Wendell Berry, A Timbered Choir: The Sabbath Poems, 1979-1997
