No Greater Can Be Thought

by Grace Pike September 22, 2021

Life in and of Yourself,

You are greater than can be thought—

far greater than this vessel wrought

with sin can fathom.

Lord, bridge this chasm

of exploration and belief;

still my soul and meet my grief

with Your immense splendor.

O Blessed Truth, help me remember

Your extent and Your immensity.

Rid me of propensity

to run from beauty and light.

Grant me grace and give me sight

beyond seeing. Consume my being

with Your ineffable goodness.
