Mark 10:21
"... go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou
shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me."

          By and by when I look on His face,
          Beautiful face, thorn shadowed face;
          By and by when I look on His face,
          I'll wish I had given Him more.
          More, so much more,
          More of my life than I e'er gave before
          By and by when I look on His face,
          I'll wish I had given Him more.

          By and by when He holds out His hands,
          Welcoming hands, nail riven hands;
          By and by when He holds out His hands,
          I'll wish I had given Him more.
          More, so much more,
          More of my love than I e'er gave before,
          By and by when He holds out His hands,
          I'll wish I had given Him more.

          In the light of that heavenly place,
          Light from His face, beautiful face;
          In the light of that heavenly place,
          I'll wish I had given Him more.
          More, so much more,
          Treasures unbounded for Him I adore,
          By and by when I look on His face,
          I'll wish I had given Him more.
