This Indescribable Gift

A hymn based on 2 Corinthians 9: 6-15, prepared for a stewardship program of the United Church of Canada.

"God cares for the poor, shares freely with all,

God’s righteousness lives forever. ..

Thank God who generously offers this indescribable gift! "

Since God shares freely with all (original wording, "scatters abroad") there is enough for all. There is enough for our need, but not enough for our greed.

(based on 2 Corinthians 9: 6-15)

Refrain: God cares for the poor, shares freely with all, God’s righteousness lives forever.

God cares for the poor, shares freely with all, God’s righteousness lives forever.

1.We are planting as disciples, knowing that as we sow, we shall reap

As we give freely, we receive God’s gift of grace; ours to keep! Refrain:

2.God gives seed to the sower, bread to all those who are hungry for food

Supplies and multiplies the gift, increases harvests of good! Refrain:

3.Gifts put gospel into action, by gift of grace our spirits lift

Thank God who generously offers this indescribable gift! Refrain:

Tag: God’s righteousness lives forever.

*It is the author’s custom to name his hymn tunes after camps and towns where Canadians and Americans of Japanese descent were interned during the Second World War. In this way he hopes to ensure that these places and injustices will not be forgotten.
