A Constant Victory

Isn't this lovely?

Before the winds that blow do cease,
Teach me to dwell within Thy calm:
Before the pain has passed in peace,
Give me, my God, to sing a psalm.
Let me not lose the chance to prove
The fullness of enabling love.
Oh, love of God, do this for me:
Maintain a constant victory.
--Amy Carmichael, from Rose from Brier (Fort Washington, Penn.: Christian Literature Crusade, 1973), 12.

I'll second that!
