8.

Those who love God happily,
Cheerfully, self-givingly, unconditionally,
Sleeplessly and breathlessly
Will never, never, never believe
In God's defeat-failures.
To them, every moment is God's Victory,
God's Supreme Victory,
Even though at times
Our wee human mind
Cannot understand the significance
Of God's constant Victory,
Victory Transcendental
And Victory Universal.
