Sufficient


 


His grace is sufficient


His son he sent


Humbly to begin


And the Magi three adored Him


 


His grace is sufficient


His son Jesus willingly


Accepted the cross at Calvary


Who else would?


Die for you; and for me


 


 


His grace is sufficient


That precious blood as it flowed


Of lance and nails and thorn and whips


Was offered from his lips


That the father may forgive us


 


His grace is sufficient


Promise he did


His promise fulfilled


The temple destructible


We would by his example


Transcend to resurrect able


 


His grace is sufficient


For on day three


From the grave arose He


To show us that


As we die with Him


We too will arise through Him


 


His grace is sufficient


There at the Mount of Olives


As that cloud hovered near


Into it he ascended


To Our Father on high


 


 


His grace is sufficient


He did not leave us nor forsake us


In mighty wind and fiery tongues


His holy spirit forms into


The Body of Christ anew


 


His grace is sufficient


All of the gifts from His father


To this body now endowed


And we are God's heirs


Nutured in forgiveness


For imperfect are we


But perfect is He


 


Whose grace is sufficient for us
