So Near

Below, above, around thee everywhere--
So is My love, like clearness of blue air.

To find the air so high, and yet so low,
Tell Me, beloved, hast thou far to go?


So high, so low-- but I had thought Thee far,
Remote, aloof, like glory of a star.

And is the way of love so near to me?
Then by that way I come; I come to Thee.

-Amy Carmichael, Gold By Moonlight

How gorgeous! Thanks for leaving me a comment. It's good to know that there are other young people striving to be holy for Christ. Thanks for the encouragement Melanie! :)
