Poems - Nothing For Him

“Nothing For Him”

And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off, and shall have nothing; and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war; desolations are decreed.
Daniel 9:26 R.V.

“All that the believer has in the world is a path through it.”

Verse 1
Nothing for Him, no, nothing for Him;
He, who had come to the earth to redeem
Wandering sinners from pathways of sin,
Accepted His portion, nothing for Him.

Verse 2
Then, O my soul, there is nothing for thee;
Thou art His bride and thy portion is He,
Destined to reign with the Lord on His throne
Thou canst forego all that others may own.

Verse 3
Nothing for thee, no, nothing for thee,
Count it thy glory His follower to be;
One with Him here in life empty and bare,
One with Him yonder, His glory to share.

Verse 4
One with thy Lord in the journey through time,
One with thy Lord in eternity’s clime,
One in the suffering and one when ‘tis o’er.
One with thy Savior! What needest thou more?
