You love us unfailingly
No matter what
You lift us up
When we fall down

Whatever you do
You do for us

You give us faith
When we despair
You are our savior
When we fail

Whatever you do
You do for us

You heal our hearts 
When they are broken
You bless us genuinely
When we are wanting

Whatever you do
You do for us

You are our ears
When we cannot hear
You are our voices
When we cannot speak

Whatever you do 
You do for us

You make us smile 
When we are sad
You are our strength
When we are weak

Whatever you do 
You do for us

You raise us up
When we cannot reach
You give us wisdom
When we are ignorant

Whatever you do
You do for us

You protect us
When we are unsheltered
You give us freedom
When we are subdued

Whatever you do
You do for us

You make us humble
When we are proud
You teach us compassion
When we are uncaring

Whatever you do
You do for us

You teach us to be non-violent
When we are prone to violence
You instill in us selflessness
When we are selfish

Whatever you do 
You do for us
You have done more than enough for us
Now please teach us to serve you

You are the Compassionate One
The emanation of Avalokiteshvara
You are the simple monk
Who is an ocean of wisdom
You are Tenzin Gyatso
Our precious Dalai Lama
