JH Sayyar's Sonnets

38
Always trust in God with all your heart,
No religion but what you think and know,
The wisdom of world God’s immortal part
But for those who daily in temples bow
Our wisdom deceives us we know it well,
God’s wisdom protects us all Books show,
Where the souls fly no one can this tell?
What is life? And how all we do grow?
Always pray to God all day and night,
Demand God’s mercy and repent of sins,
Do think in loneliness our deeds are right?
But goes to Heaven who God’ mercy wins.

O! Man, do not boast of your mortal being,
Ah! What we do all day my God is seeing.
