Young Woman Or Man

Rich young woman or young man,
(Courtesan or charlatan,)
All in life not of My plan
Give,  if you’d be where I am.”

He asks something hard indeed,
Asks for what splits Him and me,
Something  filling heart and thoughts
That hinders loving as I ought.

What’s  the gift  to give my King,
Which, for me, is everything?
That’s what He wants, freely given;
What He asks, to be forgiven.
