An Adaptation of George Herbert's Love (III)
Adaptation and Arrangement by Andy Gilbert

Love bade me welcome: yet my soul drew back,
Guilty of dust and sin.
But quick-eyed Love, observing me grow slack
From my first entrance in,
Drew Nearer to me, sweetly questioning,
If I lacked anything.

A guest, I answered, worthy to be here:
Love said, You shall be he.
I the unkind, ungrateful? Ah my dear,
I cannot look upon thee.
Love took my hand, and smiling did reply,
Who made the eyes but I?

Truth Lord but I have marred them: let my shame
Go where it doth deserve.
And know you not, says Love, who bore the blame?
My dear, then I will serve.


Love bade me welcome: yet my soul drew back,
Guilty of dust and sin. again
But quick-eyed Love, observing me grow slack
From this next entrance in,
Drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning,
If I lacked anything.

George Herbert was an early 17th century Welsh born poet and priest of the Church of England and is associated with metaphysical poets. Herbert's The Temple is a poetic and lyrical collection of his personal exploration of one's relationship with God. The book's final lyrical poem, Love III, is the climatic poem in a triptych on the worthiness of us to sit and be a guest at the Lord's table and God's role as host. Herbert was quite bold at the time in showing how God is Love. This adaptation includes an additional verse; a slightly altered repeated ending verse, that reveals man's repeating sin, repentance and return but even more revealing is God's unconditional forever Love.
