Sacrifice

 

To sacrifice for others: a choice a soul can make -

            An honor and a privilege to give more than you take

 

So many bow before Him and beg Him for the task.

            So few can hold and carry all that He will ask.

 

God’s appreciation, if you could only see

            God’s praise and God’s regard - please don’t pity me

 

To sacrifice for others, a choice a soul can earn -

            An honor and a privilege to teach more than you learn.

 

So many bow before Him and beg Him for the task.

            So few can hold and carry all that He will ask.

 

God’s fondness and affection, if you could only see

            God’s grace and God’s revere - please don’t pity me.

 

To sacrifice for others, a choice a soul can keep -

            An honor and a privilege to sow more than you reap.

 

So many bow before Him and beg Him for the task.

            So few can hold and carry all that He will ask.

 

God’s gratitude and favor, if you could only see

            God’s love and God’s respect - please don’t pity me
