disagree  Stephen C. Farrand: Sorry, folks: This is "thank you"; "thanks to you" is "tua opera" (ablative case) e.g. Catullus 3
8 hrs

agree  Rebecca Garber: as in 'thank you'
9 hrs

agree  Veronika McLaren: with the "is given" understood
10 hrs

neutral  Olga Cartlidge: I agree with Stephen - "Gratias tibi ago / habeo" would mean "Thank you" whereas "thanks to you" could be translated as "gratia tibi" where "tibi" would be the genitive case and not the dative as in the previous example.
