A grateful heart

George Herbert

English pastor & poet George Herbert (1593-1633).

Thou has given so much to me
Give one thing more – a grateful heart;
Not thankful when it pleases me,
As if Thy blessings had spare days;
But such a heart, whose pulse may be Thy praise

— George Herbert

May it be so for each of us as we celebrate Christ the King and prepare to enter Advent!
