No Payment Required

God does not issue credit
nor charge an annual fee;
the services He renders
are absolutely free.

He does not keep a ledger
nor send out monthly bills,
demanding timely payments,
as His coffer fills.

He does not telephone
to say I am behind,
nor does he send me letters
so friendly to remind.

The precious gifts He offers,
my money cannot buy.
I know I can't repay Him,
although sometimes I try.

But as I think about it,
I'm sure that God is pleased
when I thank Him sincerely,
down upon my knees.
