Came Across This Poem


    by J. B. Rittenhouse

I bargained with Life for a penny,

And Life would pay no more,

However I begged at evening

When I counted my scanty store.


For Life is just an employer,

He gives you what you ask,

But once you have set the wages,

Why, you must bear the task.


I worked for a menial's hire,

Only to learn, dismayed,

That any wage I had asked of Life,

Life would have willingly paid.

Hummm, I wonder if the same is true if you substitute "the Lord" for the word Life?
