I have no need of a bull from your stall or of goats from your pens, for every animal of the forest is Mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills.@Psalm 50:9-10

Thus saith the Lord, “The spacious fields,
And flocks, and herds, are Mine;
O’er all the cattle of the hills
I claim a right divine.

“I ask no sheep for sacrifice,
Nor bullocks burnt with fire;
To hope and love, to pray and praise,
Is all that I require.

“Call upon Me when trouble’s near,
My hand shall set thee free;
Then shall thy thankful lips declare
The honor due to Me.

The man that offers humble praise,
He glorifies Me best;
And those that tread My holy ways
Shall My salvation taste.
