Three from Pollock & Pollock I

Poems from The Book of Uncommon Prayer.

Calm and Divine

Abide in me—o'ershadow by thy love
Each half-formed purpose and dark thought of sin;
Quench, ere it rise, each selfish, low desire,
And keep my soul as Thine—calm and divine.

Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896)

Speak to Him

Speak to Him thou for He hears,
and Spirit with Spirit can meet—
Closer is He than breathing,
and nearer than hands and feet.

Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809-1892)

My Heart

O God unrecognized, whom all thy works proclaim,
O God, hear these my final words:
If ever I have erred, 'twas searching for thy law;
My heart may go astray, but it is full of thee.

François Marie Arouet a.k.a. Voltaire (1694-1778)

The Book of Uncommon Prayer (1996), ed. Constance Pollock and Daniel Pollock, pp. 147, 149, 159.
