Thank you for the jigsaw piece of life designed for me,
Thank you for its fashioning in deep complexity.
Thank you for your providence that put it in the place
That was carefully seen and planned by tender loving grace.
Thank you Lord for chiselling those jagged edges rough
And tenderly re-forming, e’en when I found it tough.
Thank you for your patience and your mercy hour by hour.
That goes on and on re-shaping with endless tender power.
Thank you Lord for placing me exactly where you’d planned
In life and time and circumstance, held by your mighty hand.
Thank you for the jigsaw shapes that closely touch my own
Please teach me Lord to spread to them the Love that I have known.
I stand amazed and wonder at your great and mighty plan
Far beyond the reasoning of any mortal man,
And yet I know the jigsaw will one day be revealed
And will show infinite beauty which is presently concealed.
Your purposes now hidden to my small restricted eyes
Throughout eternity will shine, causing my praise to rise
To the only God, my Saviour, who made my life to be
A part of His great jigsaw plan for all eternity.
