Make me to go in the path of Thy commandment

Make me to go in the path of Thy commandment for therein do I delight.—Psalm 119:35.

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.—John 14:27.

 

Then may Thy glorious, perfect will

Be evermore fulfilled in me,

And make my life an answering chord

Of glad, responsive harmony.

Jean Sophia Pigott.

 

Christ is the embodied harmony of God, and he that receives Him settles into harmony with Him. “My peace I give unto you,” are the Savior’s words; and this peace of Christ is the equanimity, dignity, firmness, serenity, which made His outwardly-afflicted life appear to flow in a calmness so sublime. The soul is such a nature that, no sooner is it set in peace with itself, than it becomes an instrument in tune, a living instrument, discoursing heavenly music in its thoughts, and chanting melodies of bliss, even in its dreams. We may even say, that when a soul is in this harmony, no fires of calamity, no pains of outward torment can for one moment break the sovereign spell of its joy. It will turn the fires to freshening gales, and the pains to sweet instigations of love and blessing.

Horace Bushnell.
