Baby Blue

(November 25,1988 / Pensacola)

God's Grace

Oft’ I’ve sat and wondered
About the grace I’m given,
Brought forth from God’s hand,
And sent down to me from Heaven.

I am awed each day
The power of God’s great Love.
And the gracious forgiveness
Coming to me from above.

I stand here in my wretched filth
As you call me to Your Perfect Plan.
I stumble and fall my way through life;
But wander back to Thy Hands.

Oh Thou hast loved me
All the days of my life
And all I can do is say thank You,
And wait till You return for your wife.

    Wonderful poem...but do you really think God's grace is real...if you do maybe you could teach me about it, because I'm not real sure that it is...or maybe he just needs to show it to me...anyways once again great poem.

    Poetry is a nice, personal way to connect with God. I do it myself. I'd rather write my own thoughts to God than use a canned church prayer, tho to each her/his own. You call yourself 'wretched' but I think God sees the best in you. Nice poem, thanks. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
