The Gift of Life

The Gift of life is a miracle
That only God can give.
We must live each day with passion-
As we have only one life to live.

The gift of life is a treasure, 
More precious than riches untold.
Each minute, each hour of every day
God keeps us His loving fold.

I thank Him for His abiding love
That He so freely bestows.
I thank Him for His mercy
My transgressions and faults, He knows.

I pause to pray at the close of day:
"Have I lived this day as I should?"
Each day, I count my blessings -
For I know that God is good!

-Charles Clevenger
