Subject(s): Desire


To understand, to love and live all good,
To grasp the blessing of some cleansing fire,
To see as perfect one pure brotherhood,
To do God's work -- this is my deep desire.
To heal with love the troubled, restive thought,
To stand with outstretched hands, quick to forgive,
Forgetting all the battles I have fought
And learning from the Christ the way to live,
To strive for greater heights and never tire --
To do my Father's will is my desire.
