What Value Has This Life
What a value is life upon this earth,
its total meaning, and all its worth.
To search this globe, no greater treasure,
is this life, and without any measure.
All the diamonds, rubies, and gold,
its meaning more, in sums, untold,
Each precious breath of life to hold,
no finer gift, as we leave our mold.
If we search the land and oceans, wide,
No such scale, in truth may abide.
Beyond the stars, in heavens, vast,
Its essence of such love, was cast.
Our Creator's riches, to us, endowed,
in the dawning sun, as to lift the shroud.
A beautiful sky, and the blues of the sea,
Bestowed to us, in our lives, so free.
What greater care, and to show loving grace,
In this life to belong, in just having our place?
While in His arms, receiving our fondest embrace,
We may accept the joy, in His endearing face.
