The Fullness

Could it be: your broken heart
Comes when blessings you impart
To the wicked and the vile
Who put the righteous men on trial?

Could it be: contrition's air
Is the pleading of your prayer
For enemies and the bound as well
Who cry the bitter tears of hell?

Rend the veil and free the mind
Forsake the thing that makes you blind!
Form the circle, do not cease
To say the words which shall release!

Bring the fruits meet for the gift
Which will sanctify and lift
You from the depths to rise above
This fallen world, in truth and love!


It is not the hearers of the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but the doers of the law who will be justified. When Gentiles, who do not possess the law, do instinctively what the law requires, these, though not having the law, are a law to themselves. They show that what the law requires is written on their hearts, to which their own conscience also bears witness; and their conflicting thoughts will accuse or perhaps excuse them on the day when, according to the gospel, God, through Jesus Christ, will judge the secret thoughts of all.
