God’s Mirror


Why don’t you peep in God’s mirror to-day?
See what it shows up. The truth will have sway.
See there the blemishes shown from God’s word,
So that by looking your conscience is stirred.

Selfishness, anger and pride hover there,
Marring your image; your beauty impair,
For all the blemishes shown in God’s light;
Show you that they will your loveliness blight.

Look in God’s mirror; digest what you see.
Let God remove all the blotches from thee.
Daily return to observe where you are
To see the blotches that your visage mar!
