Love

Love bade me welcome: yet my soul drew back,
      Guilty of dust and sin.
But quick-eyed Love, observing me grow slack
      From my first entrance in,
Drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning
       If I lacked anything.

"A guest," I answered, "worthy to be here":
       Love said, "You shall be he."
"I, the unkind, ungrateful? Ah, my dear,
       I cannot look on thee."
 Love took my hand, and smiling did reply,
     "Who made the eyes but I?"

 "Truth, Lord; but I have marred them; let my shame
        Go where it doth deserve."
  "And know you not," says Love, "who bore the blame?"
         "My dear, then I will serve."
  "You must sit down," says Love, "and taste my meat."
           So I did sit and eat.
He Giveth More Grace

He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
To added affliction He addeth His Mercy
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.

His Love has no limit; His grace has no measure;
His power no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
He giveth and giveth and giveth again
