To Grow In Love Is What God Asks - Poem by Tomás Ó Cárthaigh

To grow in love is what God asks...
Or lest not grow at all,
And let happy being small be...
Should be when large not be good at all.
For theirs nothing wrong with being small
Though large all other things appear,
And we strong to ourselves may not seem,
Which causes us to have fear,
For it is good to be small:
Its decreed by God above,
To be small is a blessing
If your filled with love!
