Let not your heart be stole

r1count on yourself and only yourself
For that is the way
[Of this I am sure]
To keep from the deepest ill of life
 Save the saving of Jesus Christ,      
    Of that beautiful mystery- that is the true and surely the only WAY, I speak not
    No, not of the greatest of greatest wonders do I include,
    as I ramble on now in speech

So,
Hold nothing with gripped hands
Let not your heart be stole for nothing
 Like a passing breeze, remember you are
 So if once, but now forgotten, 
 despair not 

 but fleet and  float and soar with the birds of the air

Let not your mind be confounded for nothing
 Like a flowing river, remember you are
 Give of yourself that the earth might be alive
 But only for that, and nothing more
 For the earth gives not to the water

 [But the water must give to the earth]

And though once, will not always be of the same earth
So Sink not
But freely and verily flow on
with the fish

 and that dear old crocodile

Again ,
Count on yourself and only yourself
Let not your heart be stole for nothing
Let not your mind be confounded for thinking
  Save the beauty and wonder of Jesus 
  Of that incredible truth….
  I speak not
