alone God sufficeth

Sound II
Anthony Gormley
Undercroft, Winchester Cathedral

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.

from the breviary of St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)
translated by H. W. Longfellow
