O what love this, to give what is most precious
O what grace is, to give what’s needed most
O what mercy, to give what I deserve not
O what beauty, proclaimed by Heavenly Host
What say I to such overwhelming passion?
My response to such selfless acts as these?
Shame and sorrow to trade for grace and glory?
I can do naught but fall upon my knees
