Colossians 3:3

by George Herbert


Our life is hid with Christ in God


words and thoughts do both express this notion,
That Life hath with the sun a double motion
The first Is straight, and our diurnal friend,
The   other   Hid, and doth obliquely bend.
One life is wrapt In flesh, and tends to earth.
The other winds towards Him, whose happy birth
Taught me to live here so, That still one eye
Should aim and shoot at that which Is on high:
Quitting    with    daily   labor   all   My pleasure,
To   gain    at    harvest   an   eternal   Treasure.
