"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 Lord Jesus, Make Thyself to Me

A sister in the Lord shared this with me today. What a blessing to read such words of devotion. May God kindle in our hearts afresh such love for our heavenly Master.


"Lord Jesus, Make Thyself to Me"
by Francis Ridley Havergal

O Jesus make Thyself to me
A living, bright reality,
More present to faith’s vision keen
Than any outward object seen,
More dear, more intimately nigh,
Than even the sweetest earthly tie.

And Thou, blest vision of my soul,
Hast made my broken nature whole,
Hast purified my base desires,
And kindled passion’s holiest fires!
My nature Thou hast lifted up
And filled me with a glorious hope.

Nearer and nearer still to me
Thou living, loving Savior be.
Brighter the vision of Thy face,
More glorious still Thy words of grace;
Till life shall be transformed to love,
A heaven below, a heaven above.
