Grateful, stay close by me!
You satisfy the thoughts of lack.
You ground me in the place I am
and free me from pursuit beyond my means.
Grateful, you are a gift,
not native to the human character,
whose endeavors always include
a little more, one more time.
Grateful, always remind me
that I’m strong in the strength of God’s might,
and keep turning me back to truth
and the armor of God that protects me.
Grateful, let me hold you
in an embrace without end
that will be a pleasant comfort for all times
in a nurturing reminder of God’s abundant Grace.
