No Need of Things

Why cling to things? When everywhere a vastSupply of noble thoughts, a wealth untold,Awaits our instant use. Great truths unfoldTheir purity to those who pray and fast.Why cling to things? When into thought is castThe priceless pearl of healing Love, we holdAs naught the waves of sin that fain would moldImperfect forms at which we stand aghast.

More love is our deep need. Why hold to things,Mere misty shadows of a vision dim?Full well He knows we need a heart that singsOf praise and joy to join with seraphim:No need of lifeless things—but spreading wingsThat we may soar aloft, exalting Him.

We'd love to hear from you!
