GIVE ALL

Divers weights and measures
Both these doth the Lord abhor;
The times when we hold back our hands
We should be giving more.
An unjust weight and balance
Is an abomination to our God
Our hands should give freely
Our brother we should not rob.
For God gave us not a part of Christ
A piece to call 'our own'
So why do we give part to Him
And why, in giving moan ?
For a heart that gives in cheerfulness
Gives freely in all things,
Whether money, time or self
This heart gladly brings.
A heart that is for God alone
A heart like David's not like Saul's
A heart of flesh and not of stone
Will give to God it's ALL.

Psalm 119:1-16
