The Heritage

"The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage."—Psalms 16:6.

O God, who gave such gifts to me,—Unending life and truth,—that I,Reflecting Thy eternal Mind,Might of Thy goodness testify;Who love unchanging did bestowThat I might all Thy creatures bless;Who gave me courage, health, and joy,Wisdom and strength and loveliness;Who while I closed my troubled eyes,Hast like a tender mother smiledAnd poured Thy blessings at my feet—Pardon a most ungrateful child!No more I stand in stubborn doubt,Heir of such wealth from endless age,I will reach forth my hands and takeThis fair and goodly heritage.

We'd love to hear from you!
