I Marvel at the Miracle
I marvel at the miracle of God’s great love for me.
I try but cannot comprehend and ask how this could be
For I had left behind my God and lost my way throught sin.
Still God loved me and sent His Son to lead me back to Him.
I wearied of my weaknesses and trials filled by days.
I cried out, Lord, my burden’s hard, is there no other way?
He said, I give men weaknesses and if they come to me
I give them strength to overcome and I will make them free.
I pled with God to shed His grace and take away my sin.
He did, and yet I turned away and stumbled once again.
At last I knelt before His throne and offered Him my soul.
He wept, then gave it back to me renewed and washed and whole.
I wonder at the grace divine and power to redeem.
That Christ alone could overcome and change eternity.
My thanks cannot sufficient be. My praise is incomplete.
For all I pay, my debt remains for God’s great gift to me.
