Did you meet the Lord this morning ere you
saw a human face?
Did you look upon His beauty through
His all-abounding grace?
Did you bow in prayer before Him ere you went
upon your way?
Did you ask for strength to carry all the burdens
of the day?
Did you see His will in reading from
His Holy Word, and take
Of His promises a portion, blessed with love,
for His Name's sake?
Oh, how weak and worthless are we,
and our spirits quake within,
If we fail to meet the Master ere the pathway we begin.
How He waits to give His blessing on our lives another day.
Christian, never start with Him.
Let Him speak, and then, obey.
