Climbing out of bed

18 Jun 2022 | Our Father | 0 comments

Teach me thy love to know;

That this new light, which now I see,

May both the work and workman show:

Then by a sunbeam I will climb to thee.


George Herbert (1593-1633), Mattens.


Notes from the Compiler

Morning Prayer (Mattens) in church was an essential discipline for George Herbert: 'I cannot open mine eyes, but thou art ready there to catch my morning-soul and sacrifice: then we must needs for that day make a match.'
