THE RECKONING

Dear Father, I will serve Thee and Thy Cause;I will obey and honor Thy just laws.But let me count the cost:I must resignDear treasures which I thought were rightly mine—A personal sense of love; some quiet ease;My leisure time, and doing as I please;A loved ambition—is this, then, my cross?What recompense against this heavy loss?I hear a tender voice:"Trust Me, and proveThe greater riches of one selfless love.Freed from earth's ties, you shall be free indeed;You shall find grace for every human need;You shall have power to heal, peace, purity;My promise stands, for your security.This is your treasure and your crown, My son;I am your God, your All.You need but One."
