Poetry Friday - St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)

Let nothing disturb thee,
Nothing affright thee;
All things are passing;
God never changeth;
Patient endurance
Attaineth to all things;
Who God possesseth
In nothing is wanting;
Alone God sufficeth.

translated from the Spanish by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow...
