I Have Done

O Lord, You are requesting me
To offer You an iota of love.
Hard is it to accede to Your request,
But I shall try.

O Lord, You want me to give You
My pleasure-life and take from You
Your Joy-Life in return.
Hard is it to consent to Your terms,
But I shall try.

O Lord, You propose that I represent
You on earth.
Easy, mighty easy, to consent to Your
liberal proposal.
And I am doing it.
Lo, I have done it!
