Day by day His tender mercy, Healing, helping, full and free, Sweet and strong and, ah! so patient, Brought me lower, while I whispered: Less of self and more of Thee! Higher than the highest heaven, Deeper than the deepest sea, Lord, Thy love at last has conquered; Grant me now my spirit’s longing: None of self and all of Thee! – Theo Monod Further reading: The Lesson of King Uzziah]]>
