A Gift of Grace by JPD


Gift-giving is an expression of grace

Coming from hearts where yet is a trace

Of fallen humanity, sin, and depravity

A longing, a passion, a quest for eternity

We give  ‘cause we’re made in the image of God

But a path of rebellion we all have trod

Yet within persists a feint recollection

Of being created in joyful perfection

A small bit of grace implies there is more

If sinners give, what does God have in store?

His well is deep; His heart overflows

He’s full of grace; He wants us to know

His giving rises to the highest height

A look at the cross will capture your sight

Of the Son of God hung in your place

Giving Himself, your gift of grace
