Heaven's Gifts

Joy and fulfillment are heaven's gifts,
no flattering or clever schemes
but Life and Spirit pave the way
to satisfaction-- alway.

No personal achievements count,
no childish games, imagined, planned,
"Seek ye His Kingdom first",
He spoke and lived for us to trust.

So gentle Shepherd, call your sheep,
seek and draw those who are hid,
quiet thirst, feed, carry the sick,
Your peace bestow, in overflow.
