Poerty: If Not

If not

If not through grace,
Than how do we live?
Through the struggles of youth
The trials of life
The tribulations in death

If not through hope,
Than how do we dream?
Of rainbows and horses
Of a future of good things
Of salvation with our king

If not through love,
Than how do we forgive?
For wrongs left undone
For pain that burns strong
For innocences lost in the young

If not for Him,
Than where are these things?
The strength of grace
The joy of hope
The patience of love
