Grateful
Beyond the words!
To Him who feeds the little birds
To Him who graces simple fields
With splendor… and who finally yields
Himself

Grateful
With joyful praise!
For Him who sends the sunshine rays
And rain… where saint and sinful live
Provide for all and finally give
Himself

Grateful
For the Lord who deigned
To wash the feet of mortal men!
To teach His own the higher good
Who modeled humble servanthood
Himself

Grateful
For one who owned
The Fallen Family for his own!
Who bore their sorrow and their sin
And carried their afflictions in
Himself

Grateful
For prayerful plea!
Arising from Gethsemane
Where walked the One who came to bless
And walked within the Wilderness
Himself

Grateful
For that greater love
That only comes from up above!
That, for The Created, The Creator die
Embrace a cross, and be lifted high
Himself

Grateful
For the One who raised
His Son to be exalted, praised
Gives us of His Spirit to
Do those things His Son would do
Himself
