The Three Endowments

Updated on March 1, 2017
The Heart
The Heart

The heart, that special feeling of emotions, that of love and of sharing,

This conceived attachment to others and our showing universal caring.

Our most unique condition showing a human connection is at its core.

As rain does fall in a grand crescendo, showering, upon others to pour.

The Soul
The Soul

The soul, personifying the essence, embodiment, a blending of mind, its nature,

Rational thoughts constructed over time, through life's experiences, do mature,

That moral and emotional quality held inside, emitted by acts, what we may say.

This exposition of our sentiments, of the self, reflecting our goodness, to portray.

The Spirit
The Spirit

The spirit, regarded as the true self, capable of surviving death, in its fine role,

A principle of conscious life, animating, or mediating between a body, its soul,

The non-physical part of the self, the seat of emotions and of one's character.

That quality of courage, energy, and determination, the blessed as the inheritor.

Humankind has been so blessed, so given three qualities to all possess,

As gifts of their Father, to his most beloved children, all faithful to caress.

At our birth, later to determine our worth, and as we grow, our acts in kind.

Every child, of this world so fine, lives are sewn, a common thread to bind.

The heart, the soul, the human spirit, all are endowed . Given to us by our loving creator.
The heart, the soul, the human spirit, all are endowed . Given to us by our loving creator.
