The measure of the grace of God
With dawningís gilded ray
Brings mercies new each morning
For needs through every day.

The measure of the power of God
Is great beyond compare.
He made from nothingness the world
And all things everywhere.

The measure of Godís truthfulness
Is changeless, He proclaimed.
Though heaven and earth may pass away,
His words remain the same.

The measure of Godís authority
Is indisputable.
His sovereignty oíer all the earth
Is irrefutable.

The measure of Godís loving heart
For all eternity
Brings care for His created ones,
Including you and me.

The measure of Godís sacrifice
We cannot comprehend.
With thieves He died upon the cross,
Atonement for our sin.

The measure of Godís righteousness,
His holiness divine,
His knowledge and supremacy,
Thereís no word to define.

In truth, our God is measureless.
No boundaries has He.
The great I AMís immeasurable
Unto infinity

What a powerful message. I love the dual use of the word "measure." Your poem builds, each attribute of God gaining until the impact of the end washes over the reader. I think this would be perfect to be sung as a hymn. Love this!

Lovely poem, lovely message. I enjoyed it very much.

Indeed Beth, a beautiful praise poem that could be a hymn. As this poem inspires us to ponder the unfathomable greatness of God...so also it inspires praise for Him! Loved it beginning to end!
