Stir Me


Stir Me

Stir me, O stir me, Lord, I care not how,
But stir my heart in passion for the world!
Stir me to give, to go, but most to pray;
Stir, till the blood-red banner be unfurl’d
O’er lands that still in heathen darkness lie,
O’er deserts where no cross is lifted high.

Stir me, O stir me, Lord, till all my heart
Is filled with strong compassion for these souls;
Till thy compelling Word drives me to pray;
Till thy constraining Love reach to the poles
Far north and south, in burning, deep desire,
Till east and west are caught in love’s great fire

Stir me, O stir me, Lord, Thy heart was stirred
By love’s intensest fire, till Thou didst give
Thine only Son, Thy best beloved ONE
E’en to the dreadful cross, that I might live.
Stir me to give myself back to Thee
That Thou canst give Thyself again through me.

Stir me, O stir me, Lord, for I can see
Thy glorious triumph-day begin to break!
The dawn already gilds the eastern sky:
Church of Christ, arise! awake! awake!
O stir us, Lord, as heralds of that day,
For night is past, our King is on His way!

--Mrs. Albert Head

10. If you are a photographer, what is one of your favourite pictures you've taken? Hmm...I don't know...I can take pictures but I'm by no means a photographer.

11. Everyone must have a "dream pet" (a dragon, a peacock), what is yours? Umm...I don't have one :)

For this one I have to answer the questions given, ask some more questions and award some bloggers. But once again, I'm awarding anyone who wants to do it :)

What books have you been sticking your nose in lately? I haven't lately =//

Walking Partners

I walked with a mile with Pleasure
She chattered all the way
But let me none the wiser
For all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow
And ne'er a word said she
But oh, the things I learned from her
When Sorrow walked with me.

~Robert Browning Hamilton

For the KING!
