Rossetti: What can I give Him

Friday, April 27, 2018
    Feast of Christina Rossetti, Poet, 1894
    [Jesus:] “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”
    —John 10:11 (NIV)
What can I give Him
    Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
    I would give Him a lamb,
If I were a Wise Man,
    I would do my part,—
But what I can, I give Him,
    Give my heart.
    ... Christina Rossetti (1830-1894), Christina Rossetti: the complete poems, London: Penguin Classics, 2001, p. 211 (see the book)
    See also John 10:11; Ps. 23; Isa. 40:11; Col. 1:27; 1 Pet. 2:25; Rev. 3:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, consecrate my heart to You.
