Just a Penny

It was just a penny.
It was all I had.
And I couldn’t keep it
And still remain glad.

For I’ve known His blessings
And I’ve known His grace.
And I won’t refuse
To give God His place.

His place in my giving.
His place in my walk.
His place in my thinking.
His place in my talk.
——
You see this example
Of one God has freed?
They gave in their plenty.
She gave in her need.
—–
It’s nothing in man’s eyes,
But God sees the heart.
I’m not giving to be seen.
Just doing my part.

I don’t care about praise,
Nor pity, nor sneers.
I care about Him who
Collected my tears.

It’s all about pleasing
The One that I love.
It’s all about serving
The Father above.
——
You see this example
Of one God has freed?
They gave in their plenty.
She gave in her need.
