We receive a gift so extravagant
Plain folk like me can scarcely comprehend.
I know though to repent as I am forgiven,
to pursue the holy as I am baptized in grace,
to confess as I enter the table, to
confess publicly, absolved.
I know to learn,
as I am unlearned each day.
I know grace.
I know Christ.
Easy and yet not easy.
Such precious gems,
such a gift!
