Let Naught Disturb You

The verse below was based upon a quote by Teresa of Avila, a sixteenth-century Spanish mystic, “Let nothing disturb you, nothing dismay you. All things are passing, God never changes. Patient endurance attains all things. God alone suffices.” (read here: https://commonprayer.net/)

Let naught disturb you, nor dismay,
All things on earth will pass away;
God does not change, he is his own,
Your patience looks beyond today;
For you suffices God alone.

—J. Randal Matheny
