Images of God

中文: Chinese Version

Recently we encountered some lovely poetry written by Johannes Tauler (~1300-1361 AD, Germany). It’s English translation has been set to music by John Rutter and sung by his “Cambridge Singers”.

The images of God that Tauler’s poetry evoke can move us to know and love our wonderful Lord more deeply.

Here is Tauler’s first stanza:

“As the bridegroom to his chosen, as the king unto his realm,
As the keeper to the castle, as the pilot to the helm.
As the captain to his soldiers, as the shepherd to his lambs,
So, Lord, art thou to me.”

See link below for other stanzas. Take a moment to soak in these lovely pictures of our God and let them draw you to love and worship him today.
