Today I learn the law of love; that what
I give my brother is my gift to me.
1. This is Your law, my Father, not my own. 2I have not understood what giving means, and thought to save what I desired for myself alone. 3And as I looked upon the treasure that I thought I had, I found an empty place where nothing ever was or is or will be. 4Who can share a dream? 5And what can an illusion offer me? 6Yet he whom I forgive will give me gifts beyond the worth of anything on earth. 7Let my forgiven brothers fill my store with Heaven’s treasures, which alone are real. 8Thus is the law of love fulfilled. 9And thus Your Son arises and returns to You.
2. How near we are to one another, as we go to God. 2How near is He to us. 3How close the ending of the dream of sin, and the redemption of the Son of God.
