How Vain are the Things We Save
- I counted dollars while God counted crosses.
- I counted gains while He counted losses.
- I counted my worth by the things gained in store, but He sized me up by the scars that I bore.
- I coveted honors and sought for degrees.
- He wept as He counted the hours on my knees.
- And I never knew till one day at a grave how vain are the things that we spend life to save.
