Happy, Blessed, Grace


 
Poems and songs are always a work-in-progress and never feel quite complete. But then, I guess that is especially appropriate for poems about grandchildren - they are definitely a work-in-progress. This one is for Gwyneth Anna Mitchell born 2016-09-14.

Happy, Blessed, Grace

She is Blessed to be a Blessing
True Happiness guides her ways
Her voice speaks truth and life and Grace
Gwyneth Anna is born today

Grace, Grace, God’s Grace
Charisma will follow her all of her days

Gift from the Lord to do His work
Redeemed by the One who gave all
Ambassador for worlds unseen
Child of God and child of the fall

Grace, Grace, God’s Grace
Charisma will follow her all of her days

Blessed to see redemption draw near
To see His Grace and truth and light
New birth that shows the purpose
Shining bright in darkness of night

Grace, Grace, God’s Grace
Charisma will follow her all of her days

A name that comes from the old world
From a land of mountains and sea
To a place of peaks and ocean
To a girl who is Blessed and free

Grace, Grace, God’s Grace
Charisma will follow her all of her days
