More Than We Ask

[107 words]

I asked for just a crumb of bread.
Within His banquet-hall he spread
A bounteous feast on every side-
My hungry soul was satisfied.

I asked for just a ray of light
To guide me through the gloomy night,
And lo, there shone along my way
The noon-tide glory of the day.

I asked for just a little aid,
As I stood trembling and afraid.
With strength I had not known before
He made me more than conqueror.

I asked for just a bit of love,
For love is sweet. From heaven above
The words came now with meaning new,
“Upon the Cross I died for you.”
