    more than I deserve

    In a prayer, if you wanted to say "You've given me more than I deserve" to God, would it be «μου έδωσες παρά πάνω από τι μου αξίζει»

    Or if you want to say “I don’t deserve such generosity”… what would sound colloquial and not too “wooden”?

    Thank you.

    I don’t deserve such generosity:
    δεν είμαι άξιος τόσης γενναιοδωρίας/ δεν μου αξίζει τόση γενναιοδωρία/δεν αξίζω τόση γενναιοδωρία

    You've given me more than I deserve:
    (Θεέ μου) μου έδωσες περισσότερα από ό,τι αξίζω
    Για όσους κάποτε ρίγησαν στα άδυτα της αφής

    ή : περισσότερα από όσα αξίζω
    Άλλο πληροφορία, άλλο γνώση· άλλο βία, άλλο δύναμη.

    .....
    Ή: «Δεν αξίζω τέτοια γενναιοδωρία».
    I don't like to commit myself about heaven and hell - you see, I have friends in both places.
