There’s No Need to Bribe the Lord

There’s no need to bribe the Lord who knows, already, what you own.

Who needs nothing you can give; providing you with life and growth.

When, in faith, you offer up what’s honest; you’ll receive it back.


Give to widows, orphans and to any who must live in want.

Turn in prayer when you’re in need of justice, mercy, grace or food.

God will hear the plea of those who have been wronged and cry for good.
