Romans 2:4 (NIV) – Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?

It is but a matter of choice
What each one does with his or her life
The straight and narrow path is a price
That for many is a matter of tug and strife.

Yet it is the view that some are holdin’
That it is by their own great strength and will
It is they who keep their life from foldin’
That by their own strength, commandments kept still!

But truth be told, the Book does say
And giants of faith would be quick to add, nay!
If not for the abundant grace of God each day
There is absolutely no you or me today!
