Neglect Not

"Bezaleel made the ark... and the cherubim spread out their wings on high, and covered with their wings over the mercy seat" (Exodus 37:1,9).  "Give unto the LORD.. glory and strength.  Give unto the LORD the glory due unto His name... The LORD will give strength unto His people; the LORD will bless His people" (Psalm 29:1,2,11).  "My son, give Me thine heart" (Proverbs 23:26).  "Neglect not the gift that is in thee... Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them" (1 Timothy 4:14,15). 

When Bezaleel made the ark
And everything that he erected,  
The Lord gave wisdom to embark
In work that would not be neglected.

The cherubim spread out their wings
Which covered thus the mercy seat,
And all the tabernacle's things
The wise were gifted to complete.

Should not we likewise do the same?
Should not we give to God our hearts
To thereby glorify His name
And not neglect what He imparts?

O Lord, we would not now neglect
The gift within us that You gave,
But wholly live as You direct
In every way that we behave.
