No need to own a mansion

As this may keep our eyes from You;

No need for fame or fortune

As this could shift our focus too.

No need to follow false gods

Or ideologies at all,

As Your gate is long and narrow

And for those whose name You call.

No need for debt accumulated

To follow what others do,

Lord please keep our eyes firmly fixed

On Your Word and only You.

Please provide our daily needs

To sustain our life on earth,

And feed our spirit daily

So we understand our worth.

Thank you for Your provision

In Your simplicity and grace;

Thank You for joy and peace

We so long to see Your face.

And if You give us fame and fortune

For Your glory may they be used,

To build Your eternal kingdom

And to bring honour unto You.

“All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers and its flower falls away, but the word of the Lord endures forever.” 1 Peter 1:24
