Great Gain



Lord, give me eyes to see the little things within each day
Open my heart and help me learn to see You in this way

A thousand, thousand whispers from You brush earth’s weary sod
Open up my ears so I may listen to You thus, oh God

I have no need for riches that will tarnish, fade and rust
But help me Lord to gather treasures of the heart, not dust

Lord, open up my eyes to see the wonder of Your love
Flowing from moments within reach from portals up above

Contentment is life’s greatest gain, combined with godliness
Lord, teach me then how to remain within its quietness

Janet

Godliness with contentment is great gain…1 Tim. 6:6
