Thought for today – 07/10/10


I bind my heart, this tide, to the Galilean’s side,
To the wounds of Calvary, to the Christ who died for me.

I bind my soul this day to the brother far away
And the brother near at hand, in this town and in this land.

I bind my heart in thrall to God, the Lord of all.–
To God, the poor man’s friend, and the Christ whom He did send.

I bind myself to peace, to make strife and envy cease.
God, knit Thou sure the cord of my thralldom to my Lord!

~Lauchlan MacLean Watt (1867-1957)
