Keble: Sun of my Soul

Tuesday, July 14, 2015
    Feast of John Keble, Priest, Poet, Tractarian, 1866
For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
    the LORD bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
    from those whose walk is blameless.
    —Psalm 84:11 (NIV)
Sun of my soul! Thou Saviour dear,
    It is not night if Thou be near;
O may no earth-born cloud arise
    To hide Thee from thy servant’s eyes.
    ... John Keble (1792-1866), The Christian Year [1827], G. W. Doane, ed., Philadelphia: Lea & Blanchard, 1842, p. 20 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 84:11; Mal. 4:2; Eph. 5:8; 1 John 2:8; Rev. 1:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, shine on my heart.
