His Amazing Grace!

The Package invited me to peek
But would it hold what I really seek
I shook the box and listened close
I hoped for what I wanted most

Other boxes had frilly bows
And shiny paper that seemed to glow
Each new gift I'd gladly try
Each disappointment made me cry

Finally deciding to take a look
I found inside God's Holy Book
Reading there the Gospel story
How Jesus came to earth from Glory

A gentle Shepherd seeking the sheep
Binding the broken, healing the weak
Always calling the names of the lost
Shedding His blood to pay sin's cost

I found this box was very deep
The Truth within it made me weep
Loving me at my very worst
Bearing, Himself, life's cruel hurts

No disappointments found inside
Only His grace and mercy wide
Calling on His Holy Name
My life will never be the same!
