God's Requirement

We live by faith, but faith is not the slaveOf text and legend. Reason's voice and God'sNature's and duty's, never are at odds.What asks our Father of his children saveJustice and mercy and humility,A reasonable service of good deeds,Pure living, tenderness to human needs,Reverence and trust and prayer for light to seeThe Master's footprints in our daily ways?No knotted scourge or sacrificial knife,But the calm beauty of an ordered life,Whose very breathing is unworded praise,A life that stands, as all true lives have stood,Firm rooted in the faith that God is good.
