His Holy Wouldness

His Holy Wouldness

by: Shirley Satterfield

God breath virtue
Deep into my soul,
The unconscious kind of virtue
That does not boast of itself
Because boasting goodness is
Just the flip side of human pride.
Let my virtue be of God,
And for God.
Let me inhale His holy goodness,
And exhale the works of His holy wouldness.

Let me immerse myself in the completeness
Of the Holy Savior Jesus.
