Cheerful giving

A cheerful giver God loves, and so do you and I surely

It goes without saying that to give is more blessed than to receive

Yet there are those who are in need of donors generously giving

Giving as cheerfully as possible

And the greatest gift cannot be material things like

that tainted thing

No dollars and no cents, please

But one’s life laid down in service to the Lord

This is what I witnessed this morning

An ordination to the priesthood

Deacon no more, we call him gladly “Father!”

God loves a cheerful giver

For a moment consider what more you can do

Give of yourself totally day in and day out

And lay down your life for one and all

A noble calling indeed!
