None Beside, And None Before
There shall be nothing placed beside the Lord,
For His alone is all the glory and praise.
All the things on this earth we do afford
Shall be placed nowhere near Him for all days.
Build not your wealth with material gain,
Gathering up things that do not last.
Build your riches on the Lord, then, again and again,
He will give you blessings to fill your life vast.
Do not let your possessions take precedence over the Lord,
Getting angry when something gets broken.
For filling your life up with things you can’t afford
Will eventually cause ill things of you to be spoken.
You may hide your expenses, but not for long.
Eventually you will be found naked and exposed.
You will be ashamed of all you did that was wrong.
All the lies you told will all be disclosed.
So therefore, put the Lord first place in your heart,
And put to rest your dependence on things.
On receiving new blessings, you’ll get a start,
And spend an eternity praising the King of kings!
