Everything to Me

In vain I searched amongst this earth
For lovely pleasures, lasting peace
The worldly pleasures had no worth
And worldly peace would quickly cease

All treasures of the earth were vain
The world confused me—what was true?
What hope or goodness would remain
Throughout the ages?—only You

You taught me and I understood
That all my life, I sought for You
For You alone are truly good
The source of treasures dear and true

All temporal treasures have a mar
All temporal beauties have a stain
They fade and flicker like a star
And every life is mixed with pain

But You give joys that never end
The ceaseless hope not from the earth
You give me grace, and call me friend
In Your great love, my heart finds worth

For what on earth compares to You?
The humble heart You satisfy
When toward Your throne I set my eyes
In love, You hear each desperate cry

Though all things temporal fall apart
My hope is that You hear and see
Forever You will hold my heart
For You are everything to me

I am a nineteen-year-old girl who loves to write, especially fiction. I write many stories and poems. I usually have a moral or lesson behind my writings, for I hope these stories and poems, which Yehovah (God) helped me to write, will glorify Him as I share them on this blog. Welcome to my blog and I hope you enjoy your stay!
