Abundant Grace

by Nattie O’Sheggzy

Tides will one day assail
And deluge shall encompass round
Though help somehow fails
The sound of rain will shake 
War will hem all in,
What more is reassuring:
Grace abounds to deliver

The trees go nowhere for victuals
Rooted firmly between rocks
The beasts never left lectual
Nor medicine to heal their aches
What a reassurance to know
Grace abounds to heal.

Lean not on the strength of your hands
Or the pulse of your mortal heart
Trust not your own commands
He never fails to listen in
When you are assured
Grace abounds to save.
