How do I lay up treasures?
Will I have only stubble and hay?
Can I face Jesus so empty?
Nothing before Him to lay?
How do I win the jewels
That make up a beautiful crown?
Will I be able to look on His face
Or only to keep my head down?
Only one look, blessed Jesus!
Just once to meet Thine eyes!
Teach me, for I am yielded!
Teach me Thy will divine!
