I Owe God a Lot of Money

cash
This is a poem I wrote for the camp log book of a Community of Christ youth camp I attended in 1997.  Slightly revised.

I owe God a lot of money.  Every dime I have ever had.  Every penny I have ever made.  I owe it all to God.

I owe God a soda.  Every drink I have ever had.  Every meal I have ever enjoyed.  I owe these all to God.

I owe God a new shirt.  Every coat I have ever worn.  Every pair of shoes I have ever used.  I owe them all to God.

I owe God a tent.  Every bed I have ever had.  Every roof I have ever slept under.  I owe each and all to God.

I owe God a hug.  Every friend I have ever known.  Every relative I have ever had.  I owe every one to God.

I owe God a lot of stuff.  Everything I have ever owned.  Every item I have ever found.  I owe so much to God.

I owe God ever more.  Every day that I have lived.  All the tomorrows I shall ever have.  I owe no less than all to God.
