Christ will keep your inner compass true
A very timely and helpful poem on Psalm 49, published today on his blog by Malcolm Guite:
Where Christ himself is there to welcome you
Then you are home, wherever you may fare.
And Christ will keep your inner compass true
Though all the world is rushing everywhere,
This way and that before the winds of fear,
Between false hopes and premature despair.
But you can hear a different tune. You hear
The strong song of his wisdom. Open your ears
To hear his parables, although the foolish veer
Between their fatuous desires and fears,
With fickle fortunes that they fear to share.
Keep your security in Christ, who hears
The slightest murmur of your smallest prayer,
And do not be afraid, but trust in him,
Your heart’s in heaven, keep your treasure there.
