Quality Not Quantity

Tune & Hymn: 'Peace, peace, Jesus is here'

Mark 12 v.41-44


Jesus by treasury

In Temple sat, did see

How the people cast in

To offerings therein

Saw the rich cast in much

Others gave such


Such as they did each choose

Each one, Jesus He views

Then a poor widow she

Her offering it be

Two mites, they a farthing

Yet everything


Everything that she had

Though with poverty clad

Jesus said, Truly she

Poor widow though she be

Has cast in more than they

All gave that day


For they of abundance

Surplus, well-off finance

They gave of that, but she

Cast in all she had, see

She gave more than they all

Grace did not stall
