XXIV. My past lukewarmness, though Your heart it rent

The one who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” -Revelation 21:5

My past lukewarmness, though Your heart it rent,

You used to thrust wide open Mercy’s door.

The stumblings I so heartily resent

Do keep me humble, urge me trust You more.

All things I learned with mind on wordly aims

You used to teach Your Truth, reveal Your Light.

My darkest moments sorrow no more claims;

They prove to me Your Love’s sustaining might.

Beneath that might triumphant now I hide,

For future sorrow I cannot evade.

All former pains within Your Will reside,

And future ills through Providence are made.

All sin, all gain, all love, each loss I dread:

You make things new—all things—just as you said.
