The Stunning Kindness of our Great God

August 18, 2014

Why should I doubt my Master's love

When He has saved me through His blood;

The riches of salvation given,

Withholding nothing, even heaven?

 

""Come take of my forgiveness now,""

The Kind One said and humbly bowed

Beneath the cross that brought Him shame

So I could know His matchless Name.

 

And then, He came to live within,

Erasing and forgiving sin;

And making me His wealthy heir

So all He has I now can share.

 

Forgive me, Lord, for senseless thoughts

That question you, when you have brought

Me every kindness I have known;

I worship now here before Your throne!
