The Cart before the Horse

Can you tell me any reason
Why I should not let the cart take lead?
For surely faith acknowledges
That of such there is a need
What object would a wise man take
When assessing such a need
But in that true perfection
Which our true God conceived
This good, this true perfection
Is found in heaven within
And everyone has got it
However seemingly far from Him
So you who would then follow
The teaching of Jesus Christ
Need first acknowledge truly
That all is of the light
For of the light we all are
And that not come by works
But by and of what’s called divine
At the ending of the search
So let us live by one true faith
Beyond our worldly minds
So that we may share the fruit
Which is come and of divine.
