The pinnacle is a very lonely place

The pinnacle of the temple is a very lonely place.

You will not be waiting for me there.

Your way, your prayer,

Your disclosure of God

Takes the lowliest path….

I must come down like Zacchaeus

If I would have you dwell with me;

On the roads, and on the shore;

In the villages, towns and cities;

Down among the cares, the sins,

The labours and the sorrows of ordinary people.

That is where we shall find you.


Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), altered.
