"You shall have no other gods before me."

This, just this,
Your first command
We cannot keep.

God, one God,
No others like You,
But our eyes are weak.

You, You alone,
Are good and know good,
Give life and breath.

We, we fell,
We sought Your place
And we found death.

Still, we STILL,
make ourselves our gods
Our passions are chains.

One, one rule,
To bring us freedom
And like childbearing, life after pains.

We cannot.
You are God, and we are not,
But we cannot live that way.

You, You alone
Bring the dead to life,
God, help us live what You say.
