Perfected Fullness

Not in fancies to heap or hoard
Nor in dreams that cannot come true
But help us for a lifetime, Lord
To find and fix our hope in You

Not in Things money can afford
Or in rendezvous, dust to dust
But in the treasure of Your Word
Oh Lord, in this teach us to trust

Not in the emptiness of Want
Nor works lest any man should boast
But in the gift of your grace, God
Oh, let this be our Uttermost

Not in vain, superficial goals
Nor in pride’s base futility
But in the love that saves man’s souls
Oh Lord, let this our fullness be
