Poem – “A Child’s Embrace”

A Child’s Embrace

By Jerry Johnson

 We hold our cup up
Our eyes upon the Lord.
Our hearts are filled with joy:
To heights of heaven we have soared.
By His blood we are lifted
By His grace we take the wing.
Our hearts rise up to meet Him:
His honor and praise we sing.
In our weakness He is strong
For He has won the war.
When He cried, “It is finished!”
Sin, He defeated evermore!
He put our feet on heaven’s shore.
Today, by faith we rise and stand.
As His children born from above,
We embrace Him, our Creator,
He embraces us with everlasting love!
