The Sacrament's Lesson

I examine myselfand ask,"Have I the meeknessof Jesus, the beloved?Am I worthyto bear the standard of Truth?Have I forgivento seventy times seven,and purified my thought with lovethat the Christ, Truth, may enter in?Have I struggled in voiceless agonyto overcome temptation?"Humbly, I pray, "Father, make me worthyto be called a follower of Christ, Truth."

Remembering the sweat of agonyin Gethsemane's holy struggle,shall I murmurwhen I drink of his cup,or wish to escape the cross which—if taken up and borne—leads to glorious resurrection?Again I pray, "Father, give me strength and loveto follow through."Bowing low, I laymy faltering will at His feet,humbly and prayerfully,that His will, not mine,be done.
