Philippians: 126 Radiation

“That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again.” Philippians 1:26

How can a human being
Impart abundant joy?
Especially while facing
Such trials that annoy?

How can one be so noble
As not to whine and sigh,
While fettered and immobile,
And likely soon to die?

True joy is not created
By those who dwell on earth
But yet it’s radiated
From those of second birth.

It’s only in receiving
That humans can impart,
The joy of faith’s believing
Into another’s heart.
