Creation’s gentleness is all I see.
1. I have indeed misunderstood the world, because I laid my sins on it and saw them looking back at me. 2How fierce they seemed! 3And how deceived was I to think that what I feared was in the world, instead of in my mind alone. 4Today I see the world in the celestial gentleness with which creation shines. 5There is no fear in it. 6Let no appearance of my sins obscure the light of Heaven shining on the world. 7What is reflected there is in God’s Mind. 8The images I see reflect my thoughts. 9Yet is my mind at one with God’s. 10And so I can perceive creation’s gentleness.
2. In quiet would I look upon the world, which but reflects Your Thoughts, and mine as well. 2Let me remember that they are the same, and I will see creation’s gentleness.
