THE TRUE NEED, by            
First Line: But this: to know thy life, without a stain
Last Line: But flood me with thy beams, thou perfect light!
Subject(s): Religion; Theology

I do not wish to see my sins more plain,
But this: to know Thy life, without a stain.

I would not see the vileness of my heart,
But this would know: how pure and true Thou art.

I would forget my paltry life, so small,
And know Thy greatness, Thou, my All in All.

Oh! teach me not how deep my spirit's night,
But flood me with Thy beams, Thou Perfect Light!
