echoes of grace & gratitude

Grace invokes gratitude
like the voice an echo.
Gratitude follows grace
like thunder lightning.

– Karl Barth

The older I get, the more I see a world that needs grace.
And I need that grace too.

Splashes of grace
Fall like rain
On my parched soil

From the first glimpses of sun
To the last flickers of light
Before my eyes

Gratitude wells within
Bubbling up & up
Until it overflows

All my worship
Praise & adoration
Belong to You

Ever in need of grace
My heart & mine know full well
How thankfulness
For the gift of grace
Allows me, in turn,
To offer grace
To those about me
Waiting for Hope
Who need to hear
The Grace

Is waiting to give you, me, us
The grace we are all desperate for

For deep inside
We all know
We need grace

And when we spot it,
Receive it,
The freely given yet oh so costly
Gift of Grace

Gratitude should be our first genuine
Freely offered should be our second
As we echo the love
Our Grace Giver gave to us
