The Day of Judgment, William Blake, By Scastelete, via Wikimedia Commons

All glory to you, O Lord God,
  for the portion of the good things of this life,
  that you have been pleased to grant me;
You, Lord, made me a Steward of them,
  and at that great day,
  I must give an account of my stewardship.
O make me a faithful Steward of them,
  that I may give an account to you with joy,
  and not with grief.

Thomas Ken, 1637-1711, English cleric and hymn writer
