no praise of man, or sugared words
no hero’s death, or talents learned,
a little here, a little there
take charge O God, and strip me bare!
no good thing i need,
or pleasure seek
outside of You,
Your Word stands true.
no woman in what shape and form,
can replace Your love’s warmth
You alone can satisfy.
let me remember,
take heart, do not deny!
the greatness of the joy on High.
