For Love I Come

For love, brave love that ventureth,

For love that faileth not, I come;

For love that never wearieth,

Nor findeth burdens burdensome.

I come for hope that springeth green,

And burneth steadfast like a star;

For faith that pierceth through the seen

To things eternal, things that are.

O Love, that lightenest all my ways,

Within, without, below, above–

Flow through the minutes of my days;

The sum of all my life be love.

By Amy Carmichael

Mat 11:28 Come unto me! all ye that toil and are burdened, and, I, will give you rest:

Isa 55:1-3 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
