What an unexpected gift
I don't know what to say!
I certainly don't deserve it,
But, I don't want to turn it away.

There's got to be a catch to this.
Gifts like this are rare.
What is expected in return?
Is there something I must share?

This special gift astounds me
And I try to comprehend
The generosity of the giver -
What a gift he chose to send!

I find myself still struggling
To know how to reply.
God sent His Son to save ME
So I would never die!

Words seem much too simple.
My joy they don't express.
I search deep within my heart
To find a response that's best.

Now, it's becoming clearer -
Acceptance is the key.
I thank you, God, sincerely
For your special gift to me.

"What is expected in return? Is there something I must share?" When I read this, immediately I thought, yes there is something I must share. Share the good news about Jesus Christ, so that all may receive this precious gift from God and be sending thank you notes of their own. So thank you sharing your poem to God.

Yes, Lord, thank You so much! Read my heart, dear Father, as I am unable to articulate this overwhelming feeling of joy.
