True Grace (A Pantoum poem)

Image

I did nothing to earn God’s love, and yet

With His great favor He looked down on me

I could not ever pay my awful debt

I could find no way to set myself free

With His great favor He looked down on me

I did not know such love as this before

I could find no way to set myself free

I trusted then His Son; my sins He bore

I did not know such love as this before

God saw me there, but did not turn His face

I trusted then His Son; my sins He bore

Eternally – amazing and true grace

God saw me there, but did not turn His face

I could not ever pay my awful debt

Eternally– amazing and true grace

I did nothing to earn God’s love, and yet
