Do I have to give up everything?8


Captain, my Captain,

Do I have to give up everything

In order to claim You

As my own, very own?

“My sweet child,

First claim Me as your own, very own.

To your wide surprise

You will discover

That besides Me you have nothing of your own

To give up,

For your very existence-life

Is My blessingful Possession.

You will also discover

That I am your Eternity’s Dream-Boat,

Plus, you are My Immortality’s reality-passenger.

Our destination is the Blue-Gold Shore

Of My Infinity’s Nectar-Delight.”
