4-16-15 Give and Take

What do you own that God has not conferred?
The same is yours to take with you at death.
The wealth you gained, the debt you once incurred
Mean nothing when you’ve drawn your final breath.
For naked did you come; the same to go,
And all you wear between the two is thread.
The only covering that’s worth to show
Came from the Son of God, the blood He shed.
The Lord does give; He also takes away,
But once you are His child it’s understood.
The Earth and all that’s in it will decay,
But your eternal Home is here for good.
Now let us praise the holy name of God,
And all that He has given us be awed!
Naked came I out of my mother’s womb,
and naked shall I return thither:
the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away;
blessed be the name…
