The Worship Quote of the Week for (01/25/2000):

He Is My Altar
It has been said that the language of worship is the love language of the
soul. Have you ever written love poetry to the Lord? Today's WORSHIP QUOTE
(love poem) dates from the 17th century.

He is my Altar, I His holy place;
I am His guest, and He my living food;
I'm His by penitence, He is mine by grace;
I'm His by purchase, He is mine by blood;
He's my supporting elm, and I His vine:
Thus I my Best-beloved's am; thus He is mine.

- Francis Quarles (1592-1644)
