Taking and Giving

On taking and giving
We hear the world say
Take what you can get
Before it slips away

We buy and get and store
All we can today
But the soul is empty
We need Another way

In the scriptures treasure
We hear our Jesus say
If you want love and joy
Give it all away

Truth within the finding
When we’ve lived our last day
The only thing you take
Is what you gave away
