• “Prayer means rushing to the Father as His child. It means asking and receiving, loving and thanking Him” – Basilea Schlink

Twenty-Third Day – Loyal Responses – by Francis R. Havergal

Only

I.
ONLY a mortal’s powers,
Weak at their fullest strength;
Only a few swift-flashing hours,
Short at their fullest length.

II.
Only a page for the eye,
Only a word for the ear,
Only a smile, and by and by
Only a quiet tear.

IV.
Only one heart to give,
Only one voice to use; Only one little life to live,
And only one to lose.
IV.
Poor is my best and small:
How could I dare divide?
Surely my Lord shall have it all,
He shall not be denied!

V.
All! for far more I owe
Than all I have to bring;
All! for my Saviour loves me so!
All! for I love my King!

VI.
All! for it is His own,
He gave the tiny store;
All! for it must be His alone;
All! for I have no more.

VII.
All! for the last and least
He stoopeth to uplift:
The altar of my great High Priest
Shall sanctify my gift.

  • “God is sovereign, that is He is the boss. He is in control. He is the supreme ruler of heaven and earth for all of eternity. He is Lord. We don’t make Him Lord. He is Lord. And joy comes when we acknowledge that He is Lord; we rest in His Lordship. We trust His sovereignty, and we surrender to it. That means that God has the right to give, and God has the right to take away.” – Nancy DeMoss
