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.
