Poetry: Life

C. Doyle, Riverview, N.B.

God in His grace reached down and touched
My heart, so dark with sin.
He gave me life and love and hope
And perfect peace within.

Now in this life I know the Lord
As Saviour, Friend and Guide
Someone to trust to love to serve,
Always by my side.

Then, in His presence evermore
What glories to behold!
A life unending; matchless joy
And wonders yet untold.

For those who take God at His word
And trust His power to save,
He gives abundant life and joy
That lasts beyond the grave!
