God’s Law Demands One Living Faith,
Not A Gaunt Crowd Of Lifeless Creeds;
Its Warrant Is A Firm “God Saith;”
Its Claim, Not Words, But Living Deeds.

Yet, Lord, Forgive; Thy Simple Law
Grows Tarnished In Our Earthly Grasp;
Pure In Itself, Without A Flaw,
It Dims In Our Too-Worldly Clasp.

We Handle It With Unwashed Hands;
We Stain It With Unhallowed Breath;
We Gloss It With Device Of Man’s,
And Hide Thine Image Underneath.

Forgive The Sacrilege, And Take
From Off Our Souls Th’ Unworthy Stain;
And Show Us, For Thy Son’s Dear Sake
Thy Pure And Perfect Law Again.
