This Indescribable Gift

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

" In care for the poor, in harvests of hope,

God’s righteousness lives forever. ..

Thank God who generously offers this indescribable gift! "

Since God shares freely with all (i.e. "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 scatters abroad, gives freely to all

God’s righteousness lives forever,

In care for the poor, in harvests of hope

God’s righteousness lives forever.

1.We are sowing 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. Through grace we’ve blessings in abundance,

Through gift of grace our spirits lift,

Thanks be to God who freely 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.
