The Prize

What if I gave up everything to follow you?
What would I get in return?
Money? Prestige? Fame?

And at the end of my life
What would I get to keep?

Nothing
Money, prestige, fame
All reserved for the living

Years of profit
Ending in foreclosure
Everything left for dead

That’s what I thought

Should I likewise measure giving up everything?
But instead follow Him?
Are my accounts settled differently?

And at the end of my life
What would I get to keep?

Everything
Life, happiness, love
All reserved for me by Him

Unremitting joy
Never ending just changing
Everything meant for life

Who you follow chooses your prize
