He Who Has Nothing Has Everything.

              I don't think so.
           Tune: Imagine
"Imagine all those people living for today."

I read this somewhere recently,
I thought, "How can this be?"
How can you have nothing?
Yet everything!
It's quite an unwise decree.

I recalled the world's great famines,
I saw some of this first hand.
Hungry, thirsty people
With nothing:
That I can understand!

I thought of this statement deeply;
I wondered if this was right.
"He who has nothing,
Has everything!"
Someone must have great insight!

Then it hit me like a rocket!
It comes from a biblical source.
It says, ‘If you have nothing,
You have everything!'
How stupid, but of course!

You come into the world with nothing.
You go out of it just the same way.
So if you have everything,
You'll have nothing!
It'll all be taken away.
