~One Gift To Give~

One Gift To Give

O LORD,
I can not bear Thy Cross
Beyond the city gate;
Nor ever know, as Simon knew,
The burden of its weight.

I can not lean
As John, Beloved,
With reverence on Thy breast;
Nor walk
As Peter walked in faith
Across a billow’s crest.

I can not work, as Martha worked;
Nor bring Thee Ointment sweet,
As Mary
Broke her costly flask
Of fragrance
At Thy feet.

I can but look to Thee in prayer,
and seek
Thy SPIRIT’s fill —
One gift to give:
My heart and soul surrendered to Thy will!
