“let me learn by paradox”

I don’t know who wrote this but I know it’s centuries old and that it’s author was wise and I want to be like him…

Lord, high and holy, meek and lowly, let me learn by paradox that the way down is the way up, that to be low is to be high, that the broken heart is the healed heart, that the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit, that the repenting soul is the victorious soul, that to have nothing is to possess everything, that to bear the cross is to wear the crown, that to give is to receive.  Let me find they light in my darkness, thy joy in my sorrow, thy grace in my sin, thy riches in my poverty, thy glory in my valley, thy life in my death.

  1. I like this site better. The other one was giving me issues everytime I tried to visit.

    We do need to see eachother, and we need to visit. With gas being what it is, I think I’ll take the train down. Would you mind picking me up and taking me around?
