There has been within my heart,
A precious treasure given.
My Father has to me imparted,
A higher realm of living.
He knows no bounds, He asks no man,
To see if they agree.
He simply gives because He loves (John. 3:16 )
And that’s what He’s done for me !
I cannot tell to every ear,
Concerning my treasure sweet;
For swine would turn to rend me
Trampling it under their feet. (Mt. 7:6 )
I don’t know all about this gift,
For He alone knows all.
But I do know it’s mine from Him,
And from my heart can’t fall.
My dear gift, I’ll share with you
All He will allow.
His thoughts, His Word and His love
While I respectfully bow -
To His Sovereign Majesty
And to His Sovereign will.
I’ll guard you, guide you and protect
That the wolf may never kill. (John. 10:12 )
Why, my Father, is it me
You’ve chosen to impart
This strong desire of faithfulness
Deep within my heart?
All your ways and all your thoughts
Are passed finding out.
But I shall still ponder this gift
Until my breath goes out.
To think of You, Father is to think of my gift
To pray is to pray for the same;
To love You is to love it too,
O bless Your holy name !
