Our Gloriously Wasteful God

From: A Book of Strife, In the Form of the Diary of an Old Soul – poems of George MacDonald.


Gloriously wasteful, O my Lord, art thou!

Sunset faints after sunset into the night,

Splendorously dying from thy window-sill—

For ever. Sad our poverty doth bow

Before the riches of thy making might:

Sweep from thy space thy systems at thy will—

In thee the sun sets every sunset still.
