Grace, it’s extended by a person and not a creed.

It reached out to meet me, a wretch in need.

Belief, lets just say it was required of me,

For Jesus to cleanse my heart and set me free.

 

Faith, more than a belief that God is loving and just,

It’s an anchor that holds safely in life’s stormy gusts.

Trust, faith cannot wield its power without trust,

A willingness to be divinely guided—dawn to dusk.

 

Hope, born out of faith it never grows old,

It’s an assurance that death has no claim or hold.

Love, a litmus test I must apply to the faith I hold.

When directed towards others, Jesus’ story is told.
