Oceans of Grace - an inspirational poem

Updated on March 4, 2015

I wrote this poem in the midst of one of the darkest seasons of my life. While talking on the phone to a friend in America, she made a seemingly 'throw-away' comment, saying, 'there is always grace ... oceans of it'. The phrase resonated in my heart and following the phone call, I wrote this short poem.

Oceans Of Grace

In the dark of the night

when you're scared and alone

There are 'oceans of grace'

more than you've ever known

In the thick of the storm

when you're gripped with despair

There are 'oceans of grace'

and a Father who cares

In the depth of the valley

with no end in sight

There are 'oceans of grace'

in the warmth of His light
