Clough: steadfast

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

The LORD upholds all those who fall
    and lifts up all who are bowed down.
    —Psalm 145:14 (NIV)

It fortifies my soul to know
That though I perish, Truth is so;
That, howsoe’er I stray and range,
Whate’er I do, Thou dost not change.
I steadier step when I recall
That, if I slip, Thou dost not fall.
    ... Arthur Hugh Clough (1819-1861), Arthur Hugh Clough: Selected Poems, New York: Routledge, 2003, p. 57 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I am lost without You.
