Sonnet- Prepare Thy Heart For God
Latch your heart's door 'fore Sin's burglar breaks in;
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
Keep windows open for God's grace- Sunshine;
Take cob-webs off and clean room-dust of sin;
Set the table neat for the Lord to dine.
Wash the floor, removing stains of misdeeds;
Plug the wall's cracks and paint them with good thoughts;
Fill the vase with flowers and Christ's bruised reeds;
The Lord will change to wine, water in pots.
Let fragrant air of atonement breeze through;
Switch on the lights of wisdom that God gives;
Let darkness eternal of sin not woo;
For heart renewed is house wherein Lord lives!
And fortify the walls with fortitude;
And heed His Calls in prayerful solitude.
