God gave and gave:

           Created heaven and earth;
           created mountains and seas;
           gave us plants and animals;
            breath and Time;
            gave us hope for Eternity.

He gave us His Word
           and Gave us His Son;
           gave us Love and Wisdom
           color, laughter and tears.

God gives and gives, in joy and sorrow.
           He gives us our faith and peace; gives justice;
           gives us His healing and brings us providence;
           teaches discernment of evil and good;
           lets us fill pages of history.

He gives us our strength for today and tomorrow.


Great gifts He gave and He gave and gave;
He gives and He gives: and gives still.
Then why is His Way so narrow?
And — Oh — yes: He gives us free will!


Enter by the narrow gate: for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. (Matthew 7:13-14, NKJV)
