January 19

THEREFORE to whom turn I but to Thee, the ineffable name?
Builder and Maker, thou, of houses not made with hands!
What, have fear of change from Thee who art ever the same?
Doubt that Thy power can fill the heart that Thy power expands?
There shall never be one lost good! What was, shall live as before;
The evil is null, is nought, is silence implying sound;
What was good, shall be good, with, for evil, so much good more;
On the earth the broken arcs; in the heaven, a perfect round.
Robert Browning


HE that finds God a sweet, enveloping thought to him never counts his company. When I sit in that presence, who shall dare to come in?
Ralph Waldo Emerson


HE who ceases to kneel before the Divine wisdom soon talks superciliously of the human, and ends with the worship of his own.
James Martineau


WE seek God that we may have the joy of finding Him, and we find Him only to seek Him more eagerly.
St. Augustine
