April 23 Poem: The Greatest Good

by J. Randal Matheny © 2011

Some people wish upon a star,
I hope upon a cross;
They measure gain by who they are,
My profit comes by loss.

Some live to do to others no harm,
But not do what they could;
I live, by God’s almighty arm,
To do the greatest good.

And what, you ask, a good so great
Like this could ever be?
To bear a soul to Heaven’s gate,
For all eternity.

J. Randal Matheny

Be pithy.
