By God are Known

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 10/21/2017

To rid the weight of guilt within
And lift the burden of my sin
His love to us He does exert
Grace to us beyond desserts
In vict'ry giveth us His might
Imputes to us His righteous light
His favor rests on me instead
No wrath is poured upon my head
Adopted by His loving thought
By His blood our souls were bought
As by His grace we now are grown
Because of Him by God are known
