❦ John 14:6 ❦Thou art the Way
This verse is included in this week's appointed gospel reading, so I'm posting a couple of particularly beautiful prayers based on John 14:6...
Hadst thou been nothing but the goal
I cannot say
If thou hadst ever met my soul.
I cannot see—
An end for me
Full of repose, full of replies.
I'll not reproach
The road that winds, my feet that err.
Art thou, Time, Way, and Wayfarer.
❦ Alice Maxwell (1847-1922) ❦
Show me thyself, the truth that we must walk in;
and be in me the Life that lifts us up to God, our journey's ending.
❦ Frederick B. Macnutt (1873-1949) ❦
