One Talent

The One Talent Man

Oh, how often one hears men cry,
“I’m just a one talent man”
When what he really means is this:
“I don’t want to do what I can!”


How many men have only one?
Have you ever know of such?
Yet, over and over one hears,
“I just cannot do very much.”


Tragic it is that talent wastes,
With the Lord’s work in the balance;
While one sits crying, “I can not,”
Worrying of his lack of talents.


Instead of counting how many,
Develop what’s been given to you;
For God shall require no more of us,
Than He gives ability to do.
