CQOD: 02/27/06 -- Herbert: Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life

Christian Quotation of the Day

February 27, 2006
Feast of George Herbert, Priest, Poet, 1633
    Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
    -- Ephesians 3:20-21 (ESV)

    Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life :
    Such a Way, as gives us breath :
    Such a Truth, as ends all strife :
    And such a Life as killeth death.

    Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength :
    Such a Light, as shows a feast :
    Such a Feast, as mends in length :
    Such a Strength, as makes his guest.

    Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart :
    Such a Joy, as none can move :
    Such a Love, as none can part :
    Such a Heart, as joyes in love.
    ... George Herbert (1593-1633)

Quiet time reflection:
    Come into my heart, Lord Jesus!
