You are kind to the unthankful,
And to the evil too.
That is a powerful statement,
But I’m glad it’s true.
How long I lived ungrateful,
Finding pleasure in the evil of filth.
I was completely unashamed,
And ignored the accompanying guilt.
Yet You were kind in Your mercy
To warn me of my path
Being so wicked and evil
That I would deserve Your wrath.
In love, to save my soul
You experienced great loss
When Your only Son
Stretched out His arms on the cross.
Thank you, Luke 6:35,
For pointing out His grace.
Had it not been for His kindness,
I would not be in a better place.
Thank You, Jesus, for telling us
More about our Father God above.
The Judge who waits to justify
Is so filled with love.
