Look at this grace extended
Offered hand by glory held
Steady amid the current
When an injured heart rebelled

Lips that speak forth Scripture
A voice that currents care
A gentle leading to the cross
An urging to kneel there

Look at this grace extended
Open heart to wild abuse
A sacrifice of happy thoughts
So one can hear the truth

Ears exposed to timid speech
Hearing words inside the meaning
Loving in the doubtful silence
Solid against hard leaning

Look at this grace extended
Weary eyes by God’s hand wide
Surveying the sacred Word
The ever-blushing Bride

Look at this grace extended
Still there, though swatted twice
Undeterred, it lingers, waits
Silently offers life

Look at this grace extended
Hints of steadfastness in store
And now this grace has been received
One’s hooked, wanting yet more.
