948. Obedience, inner and outer

Inner obedience, inner obedience:
What is it,
If not a divine opportunity?
Outer obedience, outer obedience:
What is it,
If not a glowing beauty?
My inner obedience
Carries me to my Lord Supreme
Sooner than at once.
My outer obedience
Brings me to my Lord Supreme
Slowly, steadily and unerringly.
