Your outlook lazy,
Your life sort of crazy …
Purity brings security;
And Christ applies blood to the soul.

THE MASTER’S LOOK
By: John Underhill
And men took note of his gloomy air,
The shame in his eye, the halt in his prayer;
The signs of a battle lost within,
The pain of a soul in the coils of sin.
Into the desert alone rode he,
Alone with the Infinite Purity;
And bowing his soul to its tender rebuke,
As Peter did to the Master’s look,
He measured his path with prayer of pain,
For peace with God and nature again.
“Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers;
But with the precious blood of Christ,
as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”
1 Peter 1:18-19
