  I thought I would share with you one of my favorite poems! 
~Alyssa 🙂
 
The world, I thought, belonged to me – 
Goods, gold and people, land and sea – 
Where’er I walked beneath God’s sky
In those old days my word was – “I”.

Years passed; there flashed my pathway near
The fragment of a vision dear;
My former word no more sufficed,
And what I said was  – “I and Christ”.

But, O, the more I looked on Him,
His glory grew, while mine grew dim.
I shrank so small. He towered so high,
All I dared say was – “Christ and I”.

Years more the vision held it’s place,
And looked me steadily in the face;
I speak now in a humbler tone,
And what I say is  – “Christ alone”.
