It must give what it owns for giving is its drive.

For the dead it is home to make the dead alive.

It must do as it should by Wisdom as it seems.

It's not enough to make things good; its very presence redeems.

 

If it were like a lovely woman who birthed a baby boy,

   it would outdo any human by birthing greatest joy.

It is Light, it is Life; it was there at the Dawn of Creation.

It dulls the edge of every strife as heart of the Salvation.

 

It has the face of Humility, secure within itself.

This is the grade of highest Beauty, yet small enough to help.

It is the Song of soulful cheers; true Music of the heart,

   for it is the Music of the Spheres; of moves it was the Start.

 

Without it Man is mere beast, tearing himself apart.

He is less than the least; no soul without a heart.

It does more than doing well, being very fruitful.

Even in the heart of hell, it did things most beautiful.

 

The great and rich are all a pauper if they do not have it.

They have nothing they could offer but empty words and spit.

Yet the one with empty pocket who owns this is most rich.

He rides life like a rocket in his clothing of failing stitch.

 

No thought of self, only others; kindness all for them.

Desiring sisters and many brothers; being the only is the Sin.

It is Good, it has Purpose, brighter than the sun.

Looks for Hope below the surface, though there may be none.

 

Needs no emotion for motivation; Truth is its motive.

It has the Light for illumination, the brightest of any votive.

Others like it are less than gray in the glory of its hue. 

For its power we must pray for its need is due.

 

Desire is thought to be it; the error of the fool,

   Man is dead in his spirit and a worthless jewel.

So no weapon will destroy this great planet Earth;

   its absence, the very void, brings destruction by its dearth. 

 

Inspiration: John 3:16; 1 Corinthians 13:4-8; 1 Peter 4:8
