This is simply one of the most powerful poems ever written in the English language, ... or ANY language for that matter. It's a gem that is truly worth memorizing. GOD GIVE US THE GRACE TO LIVE THIS POEM ! . . .

From prayer that asks that I may be

Sheltered from winds that beat on Thee,

From fearing when I should aspire,

From faltering when I should climb higher

From silken self, O Captain, free

Thy soldier who would follow Thee.

From subtle love of softening things,

From easy choices, weakenings,

(Not thus are spirits fortified,

Not this way went the Crucified)

From all that dims Thy Calvary

O Lamb of God, deliver me.

Give me the love that leads the way,

The faith that nothing can dismay

The hope no disappointments tire,

The passion that will burn like fire;

Let me not sink to be a clod;

Make me Thy fuel, O Flame of God.

~Amy Wilson Carmichael


For it is the Fathers will that all come to repentance and salvation in His Christ. ~ Jesus [Letters from God and His Christ - Volume 1 ~ The Pearl]
