Philippians 4:23
The Grace Of Our Lord Jesus Christ

23 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

A plan was devised before there was a sun, moon and stars
That would include us in God’s kingdom by virtue of His grace
And so the results of that have goals more than ours
God intended a family of willing saints to forever see His face.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ moved Him to leave His throne on high
What emotion must have been in heaven when His leaving time finally came
The riches that are His were set aside when He came down here to die
And in His dying on the cross for sin, He defeated sin’s awful claim.

His grace continues to manifest itself in many diverse ways
As daily He bestows on us what none of us deserve
We have received from Him grace to continually live each day
That we might be faithful stewards of the One we seek to serve.

There are times when sickness accompanied by grief and pain
Affects our bodies so that we can hardly read or pray
His grace is at these times sufficient until we’re well again
And His grace has drawn from our memories what we need that very day.

In labor there are disappointments when things don’t go well
What we had hoped for doesn’t come to some fruition
At times like that, in grace, He supplies what tongue can never tell
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ brings success out of that situation.

To have His grace to call upon whenever I approach His throne
Assures me that some blessing can come when I ask for grace
In the needs of daily living He doesn’t leave me on my own
By His grace alone I can approach each day with faith.

“What blessed assurance Father, to know that the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is with my spirit in each and every situation before me – and also before the struggling little assembly of saints here. Hear our plea for strength, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.”
