To Abide

O Savior, how unspeakable is your love! "Such knowledge is too wonderful for me: it is high, I cannot attain unto it."

I can only yield myself to your love with the prayer that, day by day, you would unfold to me somewhat of its precious mysteries, and so encourage and strengthen me, your loving disciple, to do what my heart longs to do indeed--ever, only, wholly to abide in you.


(a prayer of Andrew Murray, from his book Abide in Christ, slightly revised)
