a poem written by Dr. Jack Hyles

Self, who do you think you are
That I should live only for you
That I furrow my brow with concern
That I find I am lonely and blue
That you demand I leave love for others
To only be servant to you

Self, who do you think you are
That I should love only for one
That I neglect my friends and family
That I find when my life is all done
That my life could have counted for others
But only was counted for one

Self, who do you think you are
That I should fight only for thee
That I give so much to your cause
That others find no cause for me
That not wanting to give in to others
I give – but only to thee

Self, who do you think you are
That I should fear only for thou
That I defend so well each blow
That they land on another’s brow
That I will not suffer for others
But I only suffer for thou

Self, who do you think you are
That I should search only for you
That I should seek love for you only
That I should not give to a few
That other; will see how I love you
And leave me to have only you.
