Title: The Gift of Agency

Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

Topic: agency, choice



The gift of agency is ours

God will not take away

Our choice on how we use our pow’rs

For even when we stray


God will allow the consequence

To teach us by its taste

Their lessons of great relevance.

Each choice is not a waste.


The gift of agency is strong

To shape the world for good.

But also can advance the wrong

When not used as we should.


These choices shape each acting soul

Each day for good or ill.

For our improvement is God’s goal

So He presents His will.


The gift of agency can bring

Us closer to God’s light

Essential as the feathered wing

To birds now taking flight.


Destiny is carved by choice

To depth or to the height

And every time we heed God’s voice

We harness choice’s might.
