Wealth - A Sacrament


Tune: University

('The church of God a kingdom is')


Proverbs 3 v.16

Length of days in wisdom's right hand

Such do well understand

And in her left hand be riches

And honour, such blesses


1 Samuel 2 v-7-8

The Lord makes poor, and He makes rich

Brings low, lifts up, e'en which

He chooses to do, raises poor

Sets them midst princes sure


Ecclesiastes 5 v.19

Each one to whom God riche gives

And wealth, so each one lives

God gives them power to prosper

It a gift from Him sure


Hosea 2 v.8

For Israel they did not know

The Lord appointed so

For them corn, wine, oil multiplied

Silver, gold with them plied

  • Comment from author about the poem: A hymn-poem in This is the last in a short series on wealth. There is the Old Testament view again, of blessings of material wealth. In New Testament times it is related more to spiritual wealth.

              Thanks Gary. I'm nasty and harsh to my 'wife' KP. My eccentric imaginings. Do you know KP - Kate Price in the UK, fond of the botox, etc, etc? I supposedly married her one Halloween (when else?) and my life has got worse every day since! lol. It's my daftness on here.
