The Call


Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life!
Such a Way as gives us breath,
Such a Truth as ends all strife.
Such a Life as killeth Death.

Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength!
Such a Light as shows a feast,
Such a Feast as mends in length,
Such a Strength as makes his guest.

Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart!
Such a Joy as none can move.
Such a Love as none can part,
Such a Heart as joyes in love.

~George Herbert
