TODAYS POETRY READING (I TAKE REFUGE IN TRUTH)

TODAYS POETRY READING (I TAKE REFUGE IN TRUTH)

I COME TO THEE, O Master! On thy breast

I lay my weary head; I lave thy feet

With tears and kisses, travail of my quest;

I bring my aching heart and sore defeat,

And seek thy holy joy an perfect rest.

Place thou thy hand upon my burning brow;

Soothe thou my soul, and bid my sins depart;

I ask thy sweet salvation even now;

Thy rest I seek to ease my throbbing heart;

Thou art the Truth, to thee I cling and bow.

Thou changest not amid Earth’s changing scenes;

All worldly joys, strong passions that decay,

The sordid thought, the action that demeans,

These are not thee, and they will pass away;

On thy abiding strength my spirit leans.

Lead thou my feet unto thy Holy Place;

I take thy chastening; thy great love I see;

Thy rod I kiss, and in my deep disgrace,

With longing, humble heart I cling to thee,

Knowing thou wilt not turn away thy face.
