    It is I who am thankful

    Hello,


    Is sentence number 2 also correct? How about in the past tense? What would be the correct verb to use?

    1. It is I who am thankful.
    2. It is I who are thankful.

    Thanks for your help.

    "I am".
    ("I are" is an incorrect conjugation since "are" always refers to a plural noun or pronoun.)

    Re: It is I who am thankful

    The verb "to be" would be the correct one.

    The simple past conjugation goes:

    I was
    You were
    He/she/it was
    We were
    They were
