485. God, for God's sake!

God, for God’s sake,
Don’t be so cruel,
Don’t make me Your equal!

God, for God’s sake,
Don’t be so stupid,
Don’t make me Your equal!

God, for God’s sake,
Don’t be so absurd,
Don’t make me Your equal!

If I equal You, God,
I shall lose my purest love-life,
I shall lose my sweetest devotion-world,
I shall lose my brightest surrender-sky.
