In The Curve of Gratitude

Where are you along the curve?  How grateful is your heart?
Do you know the God you serve, or the gifts that He imparts?
Examine where you are and contemplate where you should be.
Take an honest look how far you are along the curve that you will see.

He who is forgiven little, in like manner thanks less too.
But to him who grasps acquittal, a greater depth of thanks ensues.
Worship is: when we give thanks for something we’ve received.
Along those lines look back in time, is there gratitude you see?

Since I am grateful for the sunshine, I gaze up and whisper praise.
His creation is sublime!   So His worship I can raise.
Fair love be not repressed!  Along the curve; where do you rest?
To what degree have you been blessed?  What gratitude is manifest?

I am grateful for my health, so with folded hands I pray.
Through so many days this wealth! For every hour I give Him praise.
Sincere love be not repressed!   Along the curve; where do you rest?
To what degree have you been blessed?  What gratitude is manifest?

I so adore my family, with fervent tears and hands upraised.
So much the Lord has done for me, I must give Him higher praise.
Fervent love be not repressed!  Along the curve; where do you rest?
To what degree have you been blessed?  What gratitude is manifest?

I saw my dad at eighty seven, finally yield his life to Christ.
Oh, all the hosts of heaven heard my loudest shouts that night!
Grateful love be not repressed!  Along the curve; where do you rest?
To what degree have you been blessed?  What gratitude is manifest?

I met Jesus on a cross, to make amends for all my sin.
Upon acceptance of the cost, I fell in thanks but rose (born) again.
Utmost love be not repressed!  Along the curve; where do you rest?
To what degree have you been blessed?  What gratitude is manifest?

I am far more grateful now, for the God I love and serve.
I see better here somehow of where my thanks is on the curve.
God’s love is not repressed, so along the curve; where do you rest?
To what degree have you been blessed?  What gratitude is manifest?
