When I stand before the Lord,
Will He count the streaming horde?
Those who came to hear me preach
And the lessons I would teach?
In our state, see where we rank,
And the money in the bank.
Surely size will mean a lot,
For all this we’ve worked and fought.
But God’s measurement is not,
Of how many sermons taught.
But was I faithful to His call?
Did I give to God my all?
Did I seek my Lord to know?
Whether serving high or low.
On His strength did I depend?
Was I faithful to the end?
God sees not as man doth see.
What will last eternally?
So, just give to God your best.
In His hands you leave the rest.
