The Stern Command

"Come and die," he says, "that thou may live."
and stubbornly we cling, we hold to faded dreams,
tattered bodies of death, worthless things.
While all the time there is the full life He will give.
"Come and die," he says, "that thou may live."
will I have the courage to give,
like heavy packs from tired shoulders to His
able back, my life? to die?

Thou knowest, Lord, only.
