How Often by Amy Carmichael

How often, Lord, our grateful eyes

 

Have seen what Thou hast done,

 

How often does Thy love surprise
From dawn to set of sun.
 
How often has a gracious rain
On Thine inheritance,
When it was weary, wrought again
An inward radiance.
 
Thou Who upon the heavens dost ride,
What miracle of love
Brings Thee more swiftly to our side
Than even thought can move?
 
Our love is like a little pool,
Thy love is like the sea,
O beautiful, O wonderful,
How noble Love can be.
 
(From Edges of His Ways)

  • “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22
