Eternal Riches

By word and deed
We plant life’s seed
And render to earth’s portal
The tattered lot
Of scattered thought
And offerings fully mortal

But in this blip
Of trip and slip
And moment-scope of living
We touch the sod
With things of God
In humble, gracious giving

Both word and deed
Fail and succeed
Often confusing reason
But if we live
Simply to give
How full the harvest season

How often we seem to err
In the course of daily living
But one thing is certain and sure
We can never do wrong by giving
