Now And Then....


Tune: Duke Street

('Fight the good fight')

1 Corinthians 13 v.12-13


Now we see through mirror darkly

All to our sight appears dimly

But when we see Christ face to face

We shall see clearly by His grace


Now we know in part, not known all

But when we hear Christ's final call

We shall know e'en as we are known

God's omniscience to us shown


And now abides faith, hope, and love

They from the Spirit, He the dove

But of these three the greatest be

Love, also named as charity

          Now some only think of charity as in 'charitable donations' and they say, 'Send me a cheque in the post'. So I write one out for 50 pence for them (or half a dollar?). Well, they never said how much they wanted. Dunno what they're complaining about. lol.

            Hahaha xD You know what that's actually fair. If they never specified then that's on them!

            🙂 this certainly has a certain appeal ... but then every now and again I come over a little funny ..... N 🙂

            • orchidee

              Thanks N. Can we bear with 'Now and then' as people say? But what we might not bear with is 'This moment in time', or 'Basically...'
              Erm, basically, thanks for comment! They got me doing it now.

              It is a beatiful poem dear poet. much loved lines:
              'But when we see Christ face to face
              We shall see clearly by His grace'

                Thanks Freni. Yes, the 'mirror' here, in those days, was a sort of polished metal, and only gave a dim reflection. Not like glass mirrors today.
