One Thing is Needful
Mary sat at Jesus feet,
Heard His words so very sweet.
She cared for her soul’s thirst
Which she quenched with the words of Christ.
Martha her sister was worried
With cares of the daily needs.
She went to Jesus with a murmur,
Asked why she alone should suffer.
Christ said, one thing is needful
Of which Mary is mindful.
The soul is more precious
Than what the world gives us.
Seek first the Kingdom of God,
Rest will be given by God.
