Lord Jesus Christ, Wisdom of God, teach me. The Serpent said: “Ye shall not surely die”; Then, too, St Peter, echoing the lie. “Shall be as gods” – ah! that promise of our lust! – You spurned; and in Abba’s “ye are dust” placed trust. The dust-marked brow answers: “In Christ, I die.” Lord Jesus Christ, Wisdom of God, teach me.
