*~ Quote ~*

" "Have I an object, Lord, below
Which would divide my heart with Thee?
Which would divert it's even flow
In answer to Thy constancy?
O teach me quickly to return,
And cause my heart afresh to burn.

"Have I a hope, however dear,
Which would defer Thy coming, Lord -
Which would detain my spirit here
Where naught can lasting joy afford?
From it, my Savior, set me free
To Look and long and wait for Thee.

"Be Thou the object bright and fair
To fill and satisfy the heart,
My hope to meet Thee in the air,
And never more from Thee to part;
That I may undistracted be
To follow, serve, and wait for Thee." "

~ G. W. Frazer

What a beautiful poem. We need to be reminded so often to put our trust and love in and take our satisfaction from the one thing most precious. May we learn to consider the Lord more to be desired than anything else! I will copy this poem into my notebook to remember.
