Oh, to Drown

Oh, to drown¹ in Your grace, dear God,
forever would I live life so submerged.
Oh, to be chisled² to shape, by the same,
so with You into eternity I can emerge.
Oh, to be cleansed by Your last waves,
washing away all such brokenness.³

John 1:16, 7:38
Romans 6:8
Ephesians 2:5
Colossians 3:3
2 Corinthians 5:17

¹John 1:16, 7:38, refers not to a phys-
ical drowning, but a spiritual one where
as believers we are swept away and en-
gulfed by the Grace of God

²As Michelangelo used a rejected marble
block to chisel to form the statue of
David, God uses suffering to shape us
into the image of His Son

itus Reinaldo Garcia, "How to Surive
