Life needs our care, not foolish indiscretion,
the willingness to guard against our greed;
but still the world has need to learn the lesson:
extravagance puts want ahead of need.

God gives the Spirit to correct direction,
to guide us from the drunkenness of thought
that fuels a world still driven by obsession,
idolatry of things we've made or bought.

Verses 3-4 follow
