GIFT OF GIFTS!!! December 12, 2009

I found this on a friends blog and thought I re post it!!!

O source of all good,
What shall I render to you for the gift of gifts,
your own dear Son?

Herein is wonder of wonders:
he came below to raise me above,
was born like me that I might become like him.

Herein is love;
when I cannot rise to him he draws near on wings of grace,
to raise me to himself.

Herein is power;
when Deity and humanity were infinitely apart,
he united them in indissoluble unity,
the uncreate and the created.

Herein is wisdom;
when I was undone, with no will to return to him,
and no intellect to devise recovery,
he came, God-incarnate, to save me to the uttermost,
as man to die my death,
to shed satisfying blood on my behalf,
to work out a perfect righteousness for me!

O God, take me in spirit to the watchful shepherds,
and enlarge my mind!

Let me hear good tidings of great joy,
and hearing, believe, rejoice, praise, adore,
my conscience bathed in an ocean of repose,
my eyes uplifted to a reconciled Father!

Place me with ox, donkey, camel, goat,
to look with them upon my Redeemer’s face,
and in him account myself delivered from sin!

Let me with Simeon clasp the newborn child to my heart,
embrace him with undying faith,
exulting that he is mine and I am his!

In him you have given me so much that heaven can give no more.

Puritan prayer from The Valley of Vision

      hey, poti sa scri in ce limba vrei!! eu am scris in Ro la inceput si in Eng pentru ca am vrut ca toti prietenii sau mai bine zis oricine vb o limba sau alta sa poata intelege, la urma cand am vazut ca vb de eng predomina, m-am resemnat si am lasat doar in eng. Dar comentariile sunt binevenite in orice limba:). Da poti sa citezi!!! daca intri pe o sa gasesti un ling pentru un blog care se numeste valea viziunii si este super!! sunt traduceri din cartea Valley of Vision…
      Multumesc de urarile de sanatate si eu sper sa ma simt mai bine curand…:)
