Now I know God loves us all the same,
And we all partake of joy and pain,
Free will and choice, loss and gain;
Plus a chance to journey to the waters main,
Drink up and make a memorable name,
And an understanding of all things attain.
Though the journey is far from ever easy,
The lessons learned affect us deeply.
And I’ve found God gives many things free,
And carries us when we’re too weak to be.
And those that are free eventually may see
The meaning behind it all — eventually!
