Great Offering


Offering Your things to You is a great offering
I am Yours and I am offering myself to You.

By offering myself to You, O my dear
See I am very happy.

I declared myself as Your slave, my dear
And it is Your greatness that You make me
A jewel of Your crown and further
You disclosed that You depend on me,
I am very loving to You
I have a full right over You and over your heart.

I am free from all worries, see
As I have no property no bondage
As I am with You and You are with me always
I have no desire of my own either to live
Or to die or to have favorable circumstances.

I only Pray You O my dear, to enable me not to forget You
In whatever circumstance I am placed by You
Here on this earth or there in heaven or in hell
In childhood in Youth or in old age
Honored or dishonored, happy or sad.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
