Clough: steadfast

Monday, April 30, 2018
    Commemoration of Pandita Mary Ramabai, Translator of the Scriptures, 1922
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)
    See also Ps. 23; 37:23-24; 145:14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I am lost without You.
