But, each day is a time for living—

And giving is a part of life, we know.


Man, by tradition, has pre-empted God’s law

Of goodness and giving, day by day.

In giving of self, there is no flaw–

In giving of self, love is here to stay.


In man’s rush to gain for himself

He has lost that feeling, so divine.

He has put true caring up on a shelf

In order to gain “what is mine”.


Giving has become too commercial,

Not with feeling—not from the heart.

Somewhere there must be a reversal!

To give of ourselves, we must start.
