Love, Poetry


I may not attain
To great knowledge or to fame,
But the greatest truth I know,
Tis Christ loves me.

I hold my head not high,
Unworthy to bear the name of He;
I attest not to a lie,
For, truly, Christ doth love me.

I am not very much desired,
Not by man, nor by me;
But one thing has been acquired,
Christ Jesus chose to love me.

It is not for me to boast,
On how this came to be,
For in my emptiness He drew me near,
And in my sinfulness He loved me.
