CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
And thus we rust Life’s iron chain
Degraded and alone:
And some men curse, and some men weep,
And some men make no moan:
But God’s eternal Laws are kind
And break the heart of stone.
And every human heart that breaks,
In prison-cell or yard,
Is as that broken box that gave
Its treasure to the Lord,
And filled the unclean leper’s house
With scent of costliest nard.
Ah! happy those whose hearts can break
And peace of pardon win!
How else may man make straight his plan
And cleanse his soul from sin?
How else but through a broken heart
May Lord Christ enter in?
Next I will read Life of Pi, by Yann Martel, which I have been wanting to read for a long time.
I got your letter yesterday. Thank you! I will respond in kind. In the meantime, this might interest you: The Ballad of Reading Gaol by Oscar Wilde (Song)
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
I'm now reading Another Life is Possible, by Clare Stober.
