Religion Must Touch More than Mind and Heart
Music: Ogive No. 3.
By Erik Satie. Sequenced by David Cooke.
|Hear me read
the poem as
an MP3 file.
|Religion must touch more than mind and heart.
A living faith must be a way of life.
Mundane tasks done righteously are prayer,
As outer harmony heals inner strife.
Devotion must not be a thing apart,
Applied when turned towards Mecca. Everywhere
Needs passionate delight and humble care.
