“Only words have I to give,” said the poet. “Of these I give freely and that is all that God can ask. He cares not how beautiful the voice of the singer, but only that the singer gives his song.”
Do you know the story of the child who came before the Christ with no gift in her hands?
When the others would turn her away with ridicule, He spoke to them all, saying, “This child gives me her love and that is the greatest gift of all. Let all of you come as empty handed as she and then we shall have heaven upon Earth.”
