Surprising Love {Amy Carmichael Quotable}

               Surprising Love

How often, Lord, our grateful eyes

have seen what Thou hast done;

How often does Thy love surprise

from dawn to set of sun.

How often has a gracious rain

on Thine inheritance

When it was weary, wrought again

an inward radiance.

Thou who upon the heavens dost ride,

what miracle of love

Brings Thee more swiftly to our side

than even thought can move?

Our love is like a little pool;

Thy love is like the sea;

O beautiful, o wonderful,

how noble Love can be.

~Amy Carmichael, Edges of His Way
