A Prayer for Holiness

Lawful blessings are the secret idols, and do most hurt;
the greatest injury is in the having,
the greatest good in the taking away.

In love divest me of blessings that I may glorify thee the more;
remove the fuel of my sin,
and may I prize the gain of a little holiness
as overbalancing the losses. . . .

Keep me from all things that turn to unbelief
or lack of felt union with Christ.

(From THE VALLEY OF VISION, p. 20.)
