Our Lord’s Grace

My accountant says that for each credit

there must be mandatorily one debt,

and next to the assets it must be shown

its corresponding liabilities.

Economists say there is no such thing

as a free lunch and to each profit fatally

will correspond an equal loss.

So have been moved the heavy wheels

that carry our chariot through the ages.

But we know that our Creator’s accounts

do not close like this.

All of us are His lovely sons and His grace

covers and heals all days of our earthly life,

without any of our known limitations,

without our proper acknowledgment

and regardless of our faith or merit.

We are His sons and His is this world,

ours the grace of so unquestioning love.
