Looking Back

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave 
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now 
to a place on the tablets of fame.

But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue; 
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came; 
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent 
with them for the money that I might have made.

I chose to be known and be loved by the few, 
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance 
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys, 
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life, 
though some say I've squandered my years.

For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end, 
for the gold that I might have possessed.

~ Edgar A. Guest


O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
