Love Divine

Here is my heart, O Christ; thou know’st I love thee.

     But wretched is the thing I call my love.

     O Love divine, rise up in me and move me—

     I follow surely when thou first dost move.

     To love the perfect love, is primal, mere

     Necessity; and he who holds life dear,

     Must love thee every hope and heart above. 
~ George MacDonald
