Oh give thanks to Yahweh; call out in his name; make known his deeds among the people … Give thanks to Yahweh for he is good; for his extravagant kindness is forever. 1 Chronicles 16:8, 34
Today we gaze into the past at all
The kindnesses extended by your grace;
The history of charity recall
To all the members of the human race:
In the beginning we were face to face
With you and walked in daily fellowship;
Then, even when we hid in sin’s disgrace,
You did not sever our relationship.
You patiently exerted leadership
Preparing earth for Jesus’ ministry:
With love he offered his companionship
If we would turn from self-idolatry.
So now with grateful hearts we turn to face
The future filled with portents of more grace.
