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 different the world would look, how different the state of our nation would be, if there were more sanctified priestly souls! These are souls who have the power to bless, for they intercede with sanctified hearts. They never begin their daily time of intercessory prayer without having first brought to the cross all that is unholy in their lives, so that their old self can be crucified there with Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb.” – Basilea Schlink

Verse of the Day

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. — 1 John 4:18 (NKJV)
