Lyrics as Poetry

Here we bring, small or great,
gifts to offer on this plate,
what we’ve earned, what we own,
tithe or token, bread or stone,Refrain:Jesus said, “Have a care —
your heart will always be
where your riches are,
where your riches are.”
Food and drink, things obsess,
drug us to false happiness;
what we keep, what we give,
tells the truth of how we live.— Refrain —Moth and rust breed decay,
thieves break in and steal away;
love and trust need no hoard,
richest treasure can’t be stored,— Refrain —Wild flowers grow, birds find seed,
God attends to each one’s need;
as we share, all can live,
as we love, we learn to give,— Refrain —
