Willing and knowing—(The disciple)

Willing and knowing—(The disciple)

The Feast of Tabernacles.

(The Gospel History, Section 77)

If any man willeth to do his will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it be of God.

Willing and knowing

(The disciple)

(The Saviour of the World, Vol V Book II Poem XVII)

Working the Work, willing the Will!—Thou art
A Teacher of mysteries! ’tis of Thy might
We’re able, O our Lord, to get by heart
These lessons of Thy setting, in despite

Of all that heavy dulness ’tis Thy task
To lighten with Thy glorious countenance;
Till th’ inert will drop from us as a mask,
And, quickened, wake we, as man out of trance.

For what the secret, then, of willing well?
To keep the single eye, to think on Thee,—
Till seeing Christ, our lightened heart shall swell
To that vast measure, His Humility!—

Then of Thy doctrine we in truth shall know
When all our will is—in Thy way to go!

St. John vii. 17
