Lift Your Empty Hands to Me

Author unknown

One by one he took them from me,All the things I valued most,Until I was empty-handed;Every glittering toy was lost.And I walked earth's highway grieving,In my rags and poverty,Till I heard His voice inviting,"Lift your empty hands to me."

So I turned my hands toward heaven,And He filled them with a storeOf His own transcendent riches,Till they could contain no more,Then at last I comprehended,With my stupored mind and dull,That God could not pour His richesInto hands already full.
