TRUTH'S SEAMLESS GARMENT
divide the seamless garment,
Worn by one who, long ago,
When on earth with simple grandeur
Banished sin and want and woe?
Why make spoils of Christlike virtues?
Why cast lots for truth and love?
These are jewels far too precious;
Trust not chance their worth to prove.
Has our therapeutic knowledge
Lessened sickness, death, or pain?
Have we learned through man's inventions
How we best can life maintain?
Have men's theories accomplished
Sin's destruction? Can they claim
Less of sin and more of virtue,
Without works done in Christ's name?
Have we listened to the tempter?
Have we builded on the sand?
In a napkin hid the talents
Given by our Father's hand?
Or preserved the seamless vesture
Jesus meekly wore on earth,
When he gave us joy for sorrow,
Gave us health for pain and death?
