I Would Give Anything 3/30/08
Oh how I want to serve You well,
And want the final tale to tell
Of how Your Providence with me
Has shown Your honor and glory.
I want the things that You gave me
Be given back to only Thee.
I want the fruits of my labor,
The whole world to know its savor.
I want the world to live and see
How Jesus set it to be free.
I want the thorns upon His brow
To mean their freedom to them now.
I want the nail holes in His hands
Not to be from other lands,
But for His death upon the Cross
To mean be "found" and not be lost.
I want so much these things I speak,
That to my knees I fall so weak,
In prayer sublime and so sincere,
To God Almighty, very dear,
To plead and beg for brotherhood,
For Christ to be just understood,
For ALL to come to Him at last,
Step to the Good News, not the past.
For this I would give anything,
To hear the peal of the church bells ring
With the one and final saving grace,
For this lost and lonely human race,
