My Gift (The Gods Shall Sing of Him)

There will be a man so great,
they said,
that even the gods shall sing of him.

He shall be the savior of the world,
of mankind,
his ethics so strict
and his love so deep
that none could hope to match him.

I know this is true,
for Jesus is my savior
who has delivered me from sin
with the word of God
and the deepest love
the world has ever known.

There will be a man so great,
they say,
that even the gods shall sing of him.

He shall exemplify all that is good,
all that is beauty,
his smile so warm
and full of joy and love
that to see it is to know Jesus.

I know this is true,
for you have shown me
what it means to be blessed
by the grace of God
and the deepest love
this world will ever know.

"I believe in the Lord,"
they will say--
for if you do not come from him
then no god exists
to dance and sing
of you,
my gift
from God.

Author's Notes: In my life, so many things are an affirmation of my faith, and the love in my life is certainly one of them; I suppose it doesn't need to be attributed to any one kind of person, but rather I think this can be said of anyone. I hope everyone finds somebody like this in their lifetime, be they a husband (or wife, if you prefer) or sibling or friend or parent or whatever. I just think you can't do without this kind of love, or at least you shouldn't do without it. ^_^ Thanks for reading, I pray you enjoyed. God bless. ^_^ ~MJ
