Not what I practice but what, O God, I am,
The infinite expression of Mind made known as man.
The infinite expression of true humility,
Not what I practice, but what You do as me.
Not what I have to do to make my practice work;
No procrastination can in dark shadows lurk.
Mind is All, all there is that ever I can know;
So let this healing Truth through consciousness just flow.
Now let Christ-practice unfold as morning light,
In gratitude rejoicing in God’s eternal might.
Resting in the Mind that does whatever needs be done.
I know and prove this truth: God and man are one.
