My life today will be lived in time,
but eternal issues will be concerned in it.
...I, a pilgrim of eternity, stand before Thee,
O eternal One...
Make me wise to see all things today
under the form of eternity,
and make me brave
to face all the changes in my life
which such a vision may entail:
Through the grace of Christ my Savior.
John Baillie, 1886-1960
