I Was Made for Thee
I was made for Thee alone. I was made for dropping flowers of devotion gently at Thy feet on the altar of the morning.
My hands were made to serve Thee willingly, to remain folded in adoration, waiting for Thy coming; and, when Thou comest, to bathe Thy feet with my tears.
My voice was made to sing Thy glory.
My feet were made to seek Thy temples everywhere.
My eyes were made a chalice to hold Thy burning love and the
wisdom falling from Thy nature’s hands.
My ears were made to catch the music of Thy footsteps echoing
through the halls of space, and to hear Thy divine melodies
Flowing through all heart‐tracts of devotion.
My lips were made to breathe forth Thy praises and Thine intoxicating inspirations.
My love was made to throw incandescent searchlight flames to find
Thee hidden in the forest of my desires. My heart was made to respond to Thy call alone.
My soul was made to be the channel through which Thy love
might flow uninterruptedly into all thirsty souls.
