Living Knowledge
Arthur Seymour John Tessimond (19 July 1902 - 13 May 1962 / Birkenhead, England)

Living Knowledge

The Increament of knowledge makes sorrow
But your knowledge will I follow
It gives peace and sets my heart at ease
Like the air we breath, my fear it'll freeze
Give me this knowledge to live

In much wisdom is much grief;
But in your knowledge is much peace
Like sheep, my heart finds it to graze
More of your grace to know and knowledge I crave
Oh give me this knowledge to live

How can men understand, and the church be wed
If this knowledge we lack, and the church be dead;
That we may not to this world conform
But manifest as the true sons of God
Ready for the resurrection of the dead to come

It gives peace and sets my heart at ease Give me this knowledge to live Peace, grace and knowledge, But manifest as the true sons of God And to attain the resurrection of the dead to come I collected all these ideas from your poem after carefully reading the poem Liked it very much. Your desire to aquire more knowledge to live, to love and to conquer death and to resurrect. Marvellous ideas dear poet. Thank you for sharing. tony
Knowledge is all we need to run the race of life. We need more of God's know to be able to unlock hidden treasures that more human knowledge cannot. Nice piece. Thanks for sharing.
Indeed, Knowledge is power. Nice message. Sylva-Onyema Uba
You don't need a church to accumulate knowledge verily thus though those book's one surely needs. The Bible, Koran and the Torah will help you to grow. Then you need to read about twenty thousand more.. iip
His wisdom is unsearchable, His knowledge is beyond comprehension. the more u hunger for God is the more He shows u a glimpse of His will
