Carmichael: Deep unto deep

Wednesday, May 1, 2019
    Feast of Philip & James, Apostles
Deep calls to deep
    in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers
    have swept over me.
By day the LORD directs his love,
    at night his song is with me—
    a prayer to the God of my life.
    —Psalm 42:7-8 (NIV)
Deep unto deep, O Lord,
    Crieth in me,
Gathering strength I come,
    Lord, unto Thee.
Jesus of Calvary,
    Smitten for me,
Ask what Thou wilt, but give
    Love to me.
    ... Amy Carmichael (1867-1951), If [1938], London: SPCK, 1961, p. 78 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 42:7-8; 130:1-2; 145:1-2; Isa. 30:29; Rom. 8:35-39; Gal. 2:20; Eph. 3:17-18; 5:1-2,25; 1 John 3:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are my greatest desire.
