• “Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands.” – Elisabeth Elliot

The Comforter by Charlotte Elliot

Spirit of truth, of power, of love. 

Who mak'st the contrite heart Thy seat. 
The Father's promise from above, 

Blest Paraclete ! 

The gift by Christ sent down from heaven 

To cheer His flock, then tempest-tost, 
The abundant compensation given 

For Him they lost; 

Spirit! the Church's Comforter, 

With whom Thou deignest to abide, 
Light, strength, and teaching to confer. 
Our steps to guide : 

Spirit of Jesus ! one with Him, 

And with the eternal Father one ! 
Remove the veil that renders dim 

That glorious Sun. 

Oh manifest Thy power anew ! 

Reveal His love, His truths divine ! 
Till in Thy light those truths we view, 
In vain they shine. 

" Spirit of glory and of Christ ! " 

Now lead us at His feet to fall; 
Show us His ransom has sufficed; 

Make Him our all !

Verse of the Day

But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. — Acts 20:24 (NKJV)
