What doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love Him, and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul. Deut 10:12.

Eternal Resources

I wept as I prayed,
"O, Lord, I fall so short
Of what is required of me,
O, Lord, I fall so short
In my feeble love for Thee."
Praise God, He then stooped down
And filled me with His love,
Love that stems from Eternity.

I wept as I prayed,
O, Lord, I fall so Short
When I care for those in need,
O, Lord, I fall so short,
This human frame is frail indeed."
Praise God, His Son drew near
And gave me of His strength,
Strength that stems from Eternity.

I wept as I prayed,
"O, Lord, I fall so short
When I would speak for Thee.
O, Lord, I fall so short
And no precious fruit I see."
Praise God, The Holy Spirit came
And spoke His words through me,
Words that stem from Eternity.
