The Grace of God

The so swollen stream of God's Grace
runs right by the bank wherever you stand.
It's yours for more than mere dipping
in the abundance of all the power He has.

He wants so much more than a toe or two.
He wants your ankles, your knees,
your waist, your chest, your shoulders,
and your head completely submerged too.

Once you've waded in, grab the brass ring
of salvation, but don't stop right there.
God's Grace is everything you'll need
for life, and that for nothing but godliness.

Through Grace your heart will change.
Through Grace your mind will transform.
Through Grace your soul will be renewed.
Through Grace your life will be only God's.

Swept away in its swift
   current of love
      wet from head to toe
         and through and  through,
God's Grace saves us,
God's Grace justifies us,
God's Grace sanctifies us,
And His Grace empowers us
   for nothing but in His service
      all the way to kingdom come.

In the Grace of God
is a life like no other, and
just like a cool river on a hot day
it's always there for you to take a swim.
