A Poem – Put on the new man
One of my mothers favorite poems. I loved to visit her and whenever I did I was always drawn to an antique side table that had this poem sitting on top, framed. It does now as it did then, have a special message that I love to keep in mind.
Add NewPut on the New Man
No Time have I ~ to spend in idleness Today (Here, Now)
No moments can I lend to errors subtle way.
A task I have been given, through this direct demand
Put off the old, put on the new. A clear command!
Each thought must be controlled, each motive purified,
Timidity made bold and faith refortified.
But joyously I press ~ toward the desire goal,
To prove that, even now, Gods man is Perfect, Whole.
