_He satisfieth the longing soul, and the hungry soul He filleth with good_.–PS. cvii. 9 (R. V.).
That ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.–EPH. iii. 19.

Enough that He who made can fill the soul Here and hereafter till its deeps o’erflow; Enough that love and tenderness control Our fate where’er in joy or doubt we go.
ANON.
O God, the Life of the Faithful, the Bliss of the righteous, mercifully receive the prayers of Thy suppliants, that the souls which thirst for Thy promises may evermore be filled from Thy abundance. Amen.
GELASIAN SACRAMENTARY, A. D. 490.
God makes every common thing serve, if thou wilt, to enlarge that capacity of bliss in His love. Not a prayer, not an act of faithfulness in your calling, not a self-denying or kind word or deed, done out of love for Himself; not a weariness or painfulness endured patiently; not a duty performed; not a temptation resisted; but it enlarges the whole soul for the endless capacity of the love of God.
E. B. PUSEY.
