Give to him that asketh thee,
and from him that would borrow of thee
turn not thou away.
Matthew 5:42 KJV
There is this spark of giving in the saved,
A constant pouring out of love to life,
Not born of duty or of laws enslaved,
Not subject to a custom, stale and rife.
The heart of Christ provides to all that needs
Without a thought of getting something back.
The hand of Christ is busy doing deeds,
For what He has He gives to those who lack.
To those who ask deliver what you can;
To those who wish to borrow, them you lend.
The grace that you exhibit once began
With God whose love we cannot comprehend.
Don’t turn away the beggar, but recall
Christ died for that man, too; He gave His all.
