Words From A Hymn that Whispered

I found myself getting struck by these words this morning.

HYMN from Office of Readings

Lord Jesus Christ, be present now,
And let your Holy Spirit bow
All hearts in love and truth today
To hear your word and keep your way.


Give us the grace to grasp your word,
That we may do what we have heard.
Instruct us through the Scriptures, Lord,
As we draw near, O God adored.

May your glad tidings always bring
Good news to men that they may sing
Of how you came to save all men.
Instruct us till you come again.

To God the Father and the Son
And Holy Spirit, three in one;
To you, O blessed Trinity
Be praise throughout eternity.



These were from today's Office of Readings and it has held out throughout the entire day.

  1. Your Scripture made me find this quote:

    ""How, then, can one repudiate this people, whose words and deeds are consistent, and accept those persons who neither have foregone nor will forego one atom of the consideration [which they enjoy] in the way of [God] the Sovereign?"

    (Abdu'l-Baha, A Traveller's Narrative, p. 68)
