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.
