Treasure Island

Garrett Westcott


Worthy To Be First


God's love is best
From the east to the west
From the north to the south
Let His praises ring out
He is brighter than the moon
Or the sun at high noon
Grander than the sea
A perpetual blessing
He deserves all our love
No other should be above
The Creator of our souls
A Being without a mold
He is worthy to be first
Not worthy to be cursed
And I now understand
That He is our best friend
From the day of my birth
To my last breath on earth
My life is in His hands
The Leader of the band
So I love Him more than you
I love Him more than me
And to do His will
Is the reason I came to be

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
