The Grace of God

We were once stupid and misled,
In being mind numb and brain dead;
A bunch of zombies that were slaves,
Merely waiting for our graves.

It was all the lust and pleasures,
That we craved from earthly treasures;
And bodies filled with jealousy,
Because we were green with envy.

Having much discontent and hate,
So impatient we could not wait;
We had gone far out of the way,
Finding ourselves gone astray.

But as God made kindness appear,
It took away the crazy fear.
And He replaced it with the love,
While flowing down from above.

Christ saved us not for approval,
Rather to allow removal;
Through His mercy of our sin,
That had corrupted us within.

So He gave to us a new birth,
As we wait here on planet earth;
For when Christ returns on the cloud,
And picks me up out of the crowd.

So then through the Holy Spirit,
Eternal life we inherit;
After His Spirit cleans inside,
Corruption so we can abide.

God poured a generous amount,
To wipe clean of our account;
Of the Spirit through Jesus Christ,
Your Savior that was sacrificed.
