Wesley: I know Thee, Saviour

Tuesday, May 24, 2016
    Feast of John and Charles Wesley, Priests, Poets, Teachers, 1791 & 1788
    Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
    —1 John 4:7-8 (ESV)
I know Thee, Saviour, Who Thou art,
Jesus, the feeble sinner’s friend!
Nor wilt Thou with the night depart,
But stay, and love me to the end.
Thy mercies never shall remove;
Thy nature, and Thy name is Love.
    ... Charles Wesley (1707-1788), The Poetical Works of John and Charles Wesley, v. II, John Wesley, London: Wesleyan-Methodist Conference Office, 1869, p. 175 (see the book)
    See also 1 John 4:7-8; Gen. 32:28; Ps. 16:7; 42:8; 119:55; Isa. 26:9; Luke 6:12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I rest in Your enduring love.
