For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy
work:… I shall be anointed with fresh oil. 
Psalms 92:4, 10

In the quiet of morning
I kneel my thoughts
Before Love divine
To hear God’s voice,
To receive God’s Word;

In this precious communion
I can feel God’s closeness,
His tender comfort,
I grasp fresh glimpses
Of His truth;

I bow my head
In humility
And thank Him for
This spiritual nourishment,
The oil of inspiration.
