If you would follow Jesus Christ the King,
You must be willing to lose all you own.
The Son of Man on earth owned not a thing,
Though ev’ry living creature’s home was known.
The Saviour was as poor as man can be
So that you might be rich as God’s elect.
He had no place to rest His head, you see,
To show there’s nothing here you should expect.
Believe that God will give you all you need
As Christ conforms to you both heart and soul.
Eventually you’ll learn as you concede
That pillows and a bed are not your goal.
To be like Jesus, drop all worldly things
To give your life to Him and all that brings.
And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes,
and birds of the air have nests;
but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
Luke 9:58 KJV
