I’m a Picture of God’s Grace

I’m a picture of God’s grace

Hanging here for all to see;

I’m the masterpiece of my Creator,

He painted me perfectly.

He chose just the right colors,

Then joyful painted his best,

To create a unique picture

That was different from the rest.

He was pleased with his handiwork

And hung it up in a special place.

But the picture was neglected

And looked an awful disgrace.

Careless people marred the image

And splattered it with fears.

When the Master saw what happened,

He picked it up with tears.

He carefully restored the picture,

And loved it all the more;

Then added a few new touches

To make it better than before.

I’m a picture of God’s grace

Hanging here for all to see;

Some day I’ll hang in his gallery

For all eternity!
