This Life

Martin Luther

This life, therefore, is not righteousness,
but growth in righteousness –
not health, but healing –
not being, but becoming –
not rest, but exercise
We are not yet what we shall be,
but we are moving toward it –
The process is not finished,
but it is going on –
This is not the end,
but it is the road –
All does not yet gleam in glory,
but all is being purified.
