Pondering the Word – Philippians 1:2

ponderingtheword2“Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:2)

Perhaps you know by now that the poet in me often comes out when I ponder Scripture. Here is a song/poem I wrote as I thought about Paul’s salutation to the Philippians (as well as to other churches that he wrote to).


(Refrain)
Grace and peace from our heavenly Father

Grace and peace from the Lord.
Grace and peace from Jesus our Savior
The Holy Creator, the Alpha, Omega
The One who alone should be praised and adored.

Your grace so amazing, abundant and free.
Your grace is sufficient to satisfy me.
Your grace makes me grateful and fuels me with strength
And helps me to live with unshakeable faith –
And helps me to live in your steadfast embrace.

Grace and peace from our heavenly Father
Grace and peace from the Lord.
Grace and peace from Jesus our Savior
The Holy Creator, the Alpha, Omega
The One who alone should be praised and adored.

Your peace is sustaining when life’s really hard.
Your peace lights the way when the daylight seems dark.
Your peace rules my heart when I’m prone to despair
And helps me remember that you’re always there.
And helps me remember that you really care.

Grace and peace from our heavenly Father
Grace and peace from the Lord.
Grace and peace from Jesus our Savior
The Holy Creator, the Alpha, Omega
The One who alone should be praised and adored.
