I would love to find the words to an old Isaacs song. I remember the chorus goes "Thank you for the things that I never thank you for. You've given everything I need but still I ask for more. It's not that I'm ungrateful, I'm just forgetful Lord. So I thank you for the things that I never thanked you for."

I think this is pretty close to what your wanting.

THANK YOU FOR THE THINGS
THAT I NEVER THANKED YOU FOR
YOU’VE GIVEN EVERYTHING I NEED
AND STILL I ASKED FOR MORE
IT’S NOT THAT I’M UNGRATEFUL
I’M JUST FORGETFUL LORD
SO I THANK YOU FOR THE THINGS
THAT I’VE NEVER THANKED YOU FOR

THERE ARE SO MANY BLESSING
THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN ME
THINGS I TAKE FOR GRANTED EVERYDAY
THE BEAUTY OF CREATION
AND THE PROMISE OF SALVATION
LORD HELP ME TO REMEMBER WHEN I PRAY

NOW WHEN MY WAY GROWS WEARY
AND REST IS HARD TO FIND
AND SOMETIMES I CAN’T SEE MY WAY THROUGH
AND WHEN IT SEEMS THAT I AM BLINDED
THAT’S WHEN I NEED TO BE REMINDED
THAT THE STRENGTH I THOUGHT WAS MINE
IT CAME FROM YOU
