As I was writing the non religious version of this poem I kept thinking about salvation. How different my life would be (and not in a good way) without it, and how much more rich and hopeful my life life is with Jesus as my personal savior. My favorite resource for new Christians and people who want to know more about Christianity is http://billygraham.org/ but you can feel free to email me if you have questions. May your soul be filled with the joy that comes from knowing Christ!
Giving Thanks (Spiritual)
For every good thing great and small
Dear Lord, I thank you for them all
But what I’m most thankful for
Is Jesus’ opening heaven’s door
Eternal life for all who ask
Can’t be bought with any task
The gift of salvation is completely free
The price was paid upon Calvary ‘s tree.
God’s love is everlasting
We can’t earn it through good works or fasting
Nor through tithing
Nor through writhing
We just need to turn from sin
Jesus will help you to win
When you accept His precious gift
You’ll no longer be adrift
Thank you Lord for cleansing my soul
Thank you Lord for making me whole
For the security of being heaven bound
Yes, life’s greatest treasure has been found.
