The Beauty of Grace

There is a grace
     in the beauty of everyday delights,
Delicate white flowers
     dancing with the wind,
Towering trees of green
     reaching for the sky,
Even orange sunlight
     reflecting on the water,
Causing our feet
     to spring as we walk,
As the simple awes
     fill our eyes.

But more important
     is the beauty in the grace of God.
Our every sin
     He remembers no more,
          His grace forgives.
Our every wound
     He wants so to mend,
          His grace heals.
Our very lives
     He wants fulfilled,
          His grace abounds.
Our very hearts
     He wants loved,
          His grace loves.
Our very minds
     He wants to know,
          His grace reveals.
Causing our feet
     to leap in the air,
As the godly awes
     save our souls.┬╣
