XLIV. I long for mission, seeking Him to serve

But the one who perseveres to the end will be saved. -Mt 24:13

I long for mission, seeking Him to serve.

How then fear I the tasks He may appoint?

He gives to need, beyond all we deserve,

For with His very Spirit He anoints.

Already I’ve His call: “Become a saint.”

That’s work enough, vocation sure and firm,

A destiny to turn a spirit faint

And force the human heart in doubt to squirm.

I rightly doubt myself; shall I doubt Him?

When I beg Him to lead, would He say nay?

He knows my task on earth; to me ‘tis dim.

To Him I’ve recourse. Courage, then, and pray!

Cling fast to Him in prayer, and humbly trust.

He’ll guide my blindness, but keep hold I must.
