God Has Given Me

God has given me
Nothing but love and concern.
I have given God
Nothing but ignorance and self-defence.

God has given me
Nothing but Grace and praise.
I have given God
Nothing but frustration and accusation.

God has given me
Unconditionally
What He eternally has: Forgiveness.
I have given God
Unreservedly
What I eternally am: Ingratitude.
