2/1/2021 – He Called Her Name

John 20:16 - Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to Him, “Rabboni!” (which is to say, Teacher).
The sweetest sound in heaven and on earth
Is Jesus calling softly out your name.
He knew you long before your mortal birth
And waited all this time for just this aim,
That when you hear His voice your spirit sighs,
A recognition of the Master’s voice,
Then O the love you feel so deeply rise,
And every atom in you does rejoice!
Celestial notes from angels can’t compare
To just a single whispered word from Christ.
So intimate, so precious and so rare!
Eternity is found as this sufficed!
            Pay close attention to the words you hear.
            It may be the Beloved’s voice so near.
