So Strong Is Love

Third Sunday in Lent 
by Samuel John Stone

Walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us. -- EPHES. V. 2. 

Thou shalt subdue the pride of life by Love.
 Love is the light that, ever round thee springing,
 Shall show thee thy poor self: so closer clinging
 To Him who loved thee, all His Heaven above
 Shall open to thine eye, the Holy Dove
 About thee hover, and His Angels, winging
 Melodious flight, encompass thee with singing
 So sweet thine heart will be too blest to rove.
 So strong is Love: and only Love is strong
 To stay thy feet upon the pinnacle.
 Light of reproof and winning power of song
 Are of the nearness of Emmanuel.
 Only with JESUS, only at His side,
 Loving, beloved, canst thou conquer Pride.
