Thoughts for the Quiet Hour - October 12
Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not. —Genesis 28:16
The Parish Priest, of austerity,
Climbed up in the high church steeple
To be nearer God, that he might hand
His word down to the people.
And in sermon script he daily wrote
What he thought was sent from heaven;
And he dropped it down on the people’s heads
Two times one day in seven.
In his age God said, “Come down and die.”
And he cried out from the steeple:
“Where art thou, Lord?” And the Lord replied:
“Down here among My people.” —Selected
