Divine Providence

Divine Providence

God alone suffices.
He offers all we need.
When we receive,
our chalice overflows.

Should we want in the stead of need,
should we spurn his invitations,
we take not from God
the chalice that we’ve sold.

Should God bring us back
when all we have done
was want all but all
and betray all that we need?

My hands, empty; my ears, open;
my voice, at rest; that is enough for me.
