07/13/19 Weekend Grif.Net – Treasures

“Treasures” by Martha Snell =
Nicholson


One by one He took them =
from me,

All the things I valued =
most,

Until I was =
empty-handed;

Every glittering toy was =
lost.

 

And I walked =
earth’s highways, grieving
In my rags and poverty,
Till I =
heard His voice inviting:
“Lift your empty hands to =
Me!”

 

So, I held my =
hands toward heaven
And He filled them with a store
Of His own =
transcendent riches,
‘Til they could contain no =
more.

 

And at last I =
comprehended
With my stupid mind and dull,
That God could not pour =
His riches
Into hands already full.

 

[Love singing =
this to the tune “The Unveiled =
Christ”]
