The Call
George Herbert (1593–1633)
COME, my way, my truth, my life—
  Such a way as gives us breath;
Such a truth as ends all strife;
  Such a life as killeth death.
Come my light, my feast, my strength—        5
  Such a light as shows a feast;
Such a feast as mends in length;
  Such a strength as makes His guest.
Come my joy, my love, my heart!
  Such a joy as none can move;        10
Such a love as none can part;
  Such a heart as joys in love.
