Though some have more and some have less
All have the gifts that He imparts
His children will find happiness

Not in belongings they possess
But in the longings of their hearts
Though some have more and some have less

God’s little ones are most content.
They make no arrogant demand,
but try to fill each simple need
by taking on the task at hand.
