26. Jesus Sat and Watched the Crowd

Jesus sat and watched the crowd
At the temple treasury.
Some that day were rich and proud,
Making sure that all could see
Their great generosity.

Then a widow came along
Who had nothing she could spare.
Yet her faith in God was strong
And she gave as few would dare:
All she had, she chose to share.

Just a penny, nothing more,
Yet Christ said her gift was best.
What a risk, for one so poor!
What rich faith her gift expressed!
Trusting, giving, she was blest.

Lord, you see the way we live;
All within our hearts, you know.
Like that widow, may we give.
Trusting you, our gifts will grow
And our joy will overflow.
