• “Bare heights of loneliness…a wilderness whose burning winds sweep over glowing sands, what are they to HIM? Even there He can refresh us, even there He can renew us.” – Amy Carmichael

I Love to Steal Away by Phoebe Hinsdale Brown

I LOVE to steal awhile away 
 From every cumbering care,
And spend the hours of setting day 
 In humble, grateful prayer.
 I love, in solitude, to shed       
The penitential tear;
And all His promises to plead, 
When none but God can hear.
 
I love to think on mercies past, 
 And future good implore;        
And all my cares and sorrows cast 
 On Him whom I adore. 
 
I love, by faith, to take a view  
Of brighter scenes in heaven;
The prospect doth my strength renew,        
While here by tempests driven.
 
Thus, when life’s toilsome day is o’er, 
 May its departing ray
Be calm as this impressive hour,  
And lead to endless day.

  • “The greatest satisfaction I can have is the knowledge that He is what He is; and that, being what He is, He never will be otherwise. If I am saved at last, it will be the free gift of God; since I have no worth and no merit of my own.” – Madame Guyon
