I've found all I need in what You are

If I could have one hundred crowns
all decked with precious stones
if ten thousand queens of Sheba
brought me presents from afar                                                 
If I lived in perfect luxury 
with gold to flesh my bones
Lord these things could never make me
what You are

I could have the world's great scholars
with their intellect and fame
they'd teach me logic, they'd teach me science
they'd teach me how the flowers grow
I would have the best position
with wages I could name
but they could never teach me what You know

There's only one crown that I want
it's not decked with fancy jewels
no fine important persons
bring me presents from afar                                                           
I may live in humble dwellings
surrounded by life's fools
but I've found all I need in what You are

I've found the finest teacher                           
God sent You from above
and it's not with Earthly wisdom                   
that I'm taught
for I'm learning patience, kindness            
I'm learning tolerance and love
and with all the gold on Earth
that can't be bought

I could climb the highest mountains
search the heavens high above
I could sail the world's great seas
from shore to shore
never finding what I'm looking for
that sanctuary of love
For it's in God's house
and Jesus - You're the door

Hi Sandi,
I am not surprised that you agree, who would want anything other than our lovely Lord, in Whom is all we need and more. God bless

RCUBEs said...

Beautiful. He is enough! Amen.

Brenda said...

Hi there,
He is definitely ALL we need. God bless.

You too Victor.

Hi Brenda.
Very nicely written fact. Blessings from Geoff in Johannesburg South Africa.

Hi Brenda,
Thank you for your lovely, truth-filled poem. It reminds me of song lyrics I wrote and recorded, "All I Need Is You," to which we choreographed and performed a dance for our dance ministry:

May God bless you and your ministry,

Victor S E Moubarak said...

I really liked your quote on my blog today. Thank you so much my friend.

God bless, Brenda.

Brenda said...

Hi Geoff,
thank you for your kind comment, it definitely is 'fact' that nothing except being changed by His precious Word could make us like Him, a child of God. God bless you.

Hi Laurie,
it is actually a song that I wrote some time ago that I used to sing to the Lord in my home and also out in the streets when evangelizing with my friend in Wales. God bless you and your ministry Laurie.

Hi Victor, you are welcome.
I think I have a similar sense of humour to you.
God bless you.
