For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. Galatians 3.27.
The mind, O Lord, pursues familiar paths,
The body its movements practiced most and best.
We want less work and thought, the least exertion of force —
Are we lazy in fundamental ways?
Let me be clothed with Christ, to wear his name,
To sacrifice the self, to bear his heart,
To seek and find, become what he became —
Where humble Jesus started let me start.
