October 11


That which I chose, I choose;
   That which I willed, I will;
That which I once refused, I still refuse:
   O hope deferred, be still.

That which I chose and choose
   And will is Jesu's Will:
He hath not lost his life who seems to lose:
   O hope deferred, hope still.


  1. I suppose this gives something of what a poem can be - it expresses CGR's own feelings for her own situation but applies to some degree to everyone who has taken on the pathway of a Christian. The heart is for Jesus but there is still what remains of the flesh and it's awareness of the sacrifice.

  2. Yes, and she had truly made sacrifices in her life!
