  1. Many a young Christian

    Many a young Christian
    this attitude have ye:
    I'm a child of God
    No one can touch me.

    Oh, must you then believe
    that God's ways are now yours?
    You've all wisdom; all heavenly favor;
    the right way, always, is yours?

    Must you drag to your level
    the sovereignty of the King?
    For your will be done, lest you
    suffer or lose anything?

    "I have righteousness", You claim.
    "Imparted from my Father."

    But works are by carrying that cross you've tossed away.

    The high hills wherein are leopards and lion's dens.

    Your Savior is meek and humble. Come down and
    with Him, be.
    'Tis not weak or foolish at all; here is divine knowledge, wisdom, and power
    that are His will and gift for thee.

  3. Ah of course. Thanks.
  4. Very nice have talents from God that are a blessing, and I'm so glad you recognize that they should be used for the Lord.

    Blessings, Cheri:)
