     1 And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods. 2 And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward. 3 Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed. 4 I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses. 5 So he called every one of his lord’s debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord? 6 And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty. 7 Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore. 8 And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light. 9 And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.(KJV)

1. We give Thee but Thine own, 
Whate’er the gift may be; 
All that we have is Thine alone, 
A trust, O Lord, from Thee. 

2. May we Thy bounties thus 
As stewards true receive 
And gladly, as Thou blessest us, 
To Thee our first-fruits give! 

3. Oh, hearts are bruised and dead, 
And homes are bare and cold, 
And lambs for whom the Shepherd bled 
Are straying from the fold. 

4. To comfort and to bless, 
To find a balm for woe, 
To tend the lone and fatherless, 
Is angels’ work below. 

5. The captive to release, 
To God the lost to bring, 
To teach the way of life and peace, 
It is a Christlike thing. 

6. And we believe Thy Word, 
Though dim our faith may be: 
Whate’er for Thine we do, O Lord, 
We do it unto Thee.
