Crashaw: Come Love, come Lord

Wednesday, June 17, 2015
    Commemoration of Samuel & Henrietta Barnett, Social Reformers, 1913 & 1936
    But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.
    —2 Corinthians 3:16 (NIV)
Come Love, come Lord, and that long day
For which I languish, come away;
When this dry soul those eyes shall see,
And drink the unseal’d source of Thee;
When glory’s sun faith’s shades shall chase,
Then for Thy veil give me Thy face.
    ... Richard Crashaw (1613-1649), The Complete Works of Richard Crashaw, London: J. R. Smith, 1858, p. 192 (see the book)
    See also 2 Cor. 3:16; Song of Solomon 2:10; Rom. 8:23; Eph. 1:18-19; 2 Tim. 4:8; Tit. 2:12-14; Heb. 9:27-28; Rev. 22:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You will show us Yourself.
