A gift I would bring for the King of Kings.
What kind of gift would portray
The love in my heart? Money or things?
No, owns everything! What can I say?
The cattle on every hill, yes, all His!
And money? He does not need!
So what can I give from this yearning soul?
A mite, the hungry to feed?
‘Proportionate giving’, can this excuse
The pittance that I alone
Can give, in love, for a starving world?
No, this can never atone.
But it helps! A tenth is not very much
And giving extends far more
Than that which I have in my hand to give,
For the One that I adore!
You love her, you love him, what can I say?
Give him, give her, a part
A part of yourself! What more is there?
Just give him or her your heart.
Same with the Lord, just how to express
Your love for everything
That He, the Lord, has done for you,
Your life! What less can you bring?
