Weekend Wisdom: “Come”

Come as love,

that I may adore the Father, and love him as my all;

Come as joy,

to dwell in me, move in me, animate, me;

Come as light,

illuminating the Scripture, moulding me in its laws;

Come as sanctifier,

body soul and spirit wholly thine;

Come as helper,

with strength to bless and keep, directing my every step;

Come as beautifier,

bringing order out of confusion, loveliness out of chaos.
