Sacramental Sonnet

“Sacramental Sonnet,” Ensign, Sept. 1981, 5

Sacramental Sonnet

How, Lord, how

Can I be other

Than I am now?

Am I my am,

My was, another

I will be when?

Bright aspire

Or dark desire?

To me impart

As is required

A clean heart

Heartily desired.

In thy/my will

Let me be … still.
