Oh, could I only say what I have seen!
"How should I tell or how can ye receive it,
How, till He bringeth you where I have been?
"Therefore, Lord, I will not fail nor falter,
Nay, but I ask it, nay, but I desire,
Lay on my lips Thine embers of the altar,
Seal with the sting and furnish with the fire;
Oh, let my sound be stormy in their ears!
"Throat that would shout, but cannot stay for
Eyes that would weep, but cannot weep for tears.
"Quick in a moment, infinite for ever,
Send an arousal better than I pray.
Give me a grace upon the faint endeavor,
Souls for my hire and Pentecost to-day!"
Dr. Frederick Myers
