Your Grace is Sufficient For Me

When sin is left unattended and brings its doubts and fears
When peace and joy no longer have their rule
When paralyzed by disfellowship and a daily walk with Thee
I thank You that Your Grace is Sufficient for me

Your all forgiving nature prods me to swiftly seek Thy face
Your love surrounds with reminders that You care
You've paid the price for sin and that You've done sufficiently
I thank You that Your Grace is Sufficient for me

Momentarily dysfunctional when we live in the flesh
The Spirit of the Living God is grieved
Repentance brings back fellowship, restored again to Thee
I thank You that Your Grace is Sufficient for me

I thank You that Your Grace is Sufficient for me
For when sin abounded it abounded much more
Once again, the Lord is Good, I know, I've tasted, I see
I thank You that Your Grace is Sufficient for me.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
