Lord, help me to glorify you

Lord, help me to glorify you; I am poor, help me to glorify you by contentment; I am sick, help me to give you honor by patience; I have talents, help me to extol you by spending them for you; I have time, Lord, help me to redeem it, that I may serve you; I have a heart to feel, Lord, let that heart feel no love but yours, and glow with no flame but affection for you; I have a head to think, Lord, help me to think of you and for you; You have put me in this world for something, Lord, show me what that is, and help me to work out my life-purpose: I cannot do much, but as the widow put in her two mites, which were all her living, so, Lord, I cast my time and eternity too into your treasury; I am all yours; take me, and enable me to glorify you now, in all that I say, in all that I do, and with all that I have.

-Charles Haddon Spurgeon
