Closer Wooing

An Evening with Opening Hearts: the Story of a Supper and a Walk in the Moonlight and the Shadows

Nigh and nigh draws the chase,

With unperturbed pace,

Deliberate speed, majestic instancy,

And past those noised Feet

A Voice comes yet more fleet-

"Lo, naught contents thee, who content'st not Me."

-"The Hound of Heaven."

"I came forth from the Father, and am come int

o the world: again, I

leave the world, and go unto the Father."-John xvi. 28.

"I thought His love would weaken

As more and more He knew me;

But it burneth like a beacon,

And its light and heat go through me;

And I ever hear Him say,

As He goes along His way,

Wand'ring souls, O do come near Me;

My sheep should never fear Me.

I am the Shepherd true."

-Frederick William Faber.
