“I have yet many Things to say unto You”

Samuel Greg (1804–1877)


CHRIST has many things to say

To souls that can his message bear:

But he throws not pearls away,

Where he finds no listening ear.

As the soul can more receive,

Still the more does he bestow:

As our faith doth more believe,

Still his revelations grow.

All the thirsting soul doth seek,

All the waken’d thought can hold,

That doth Jesus freely speak,

That to listening hearts unfold.

Thus the light to Christians given,

Measured by their power must be

To receive this gift of heaven;

By each one’s capacity.

The Master to his saints will speak

All their souls as yet can bear:

Wanting more themselves must make

Worthy, able more to hear.
