Love to Jesus

Keep me from the error of thinking thou dost appear gloriously
when some strange light fills my heart,
as if that were the glorious activity of grace,
but let me see that the truest revelation of thyself
is when thou dost eclipse all my personal glory
and all the honour, pleasure and good
of this world.
The Son breaks out in glory
when he shows himself as one who outshines
all creation,
makes men poor in spirit,
and helps them to find their good in him.
Grant that I may distrust myself, to see
my all in thee.

–from “Love to Jesus,” in The Valley of Vision

    Amen. Have you heard/seen the CD called Valley of Vision of Puritan prayer based worship songs? Some friends from Minneapolis sent it to us and it’s lovely.

    I was just peeking at that today on iTunes, Lisa. It might be making its way on to my present (new ipod) soon… 🙂
