Poetry Pleases: By Love Surrounded

John Ayling longed for an eternity of love unbounded.

Let me live by love surrounded
Then unlamented pass away
To a life where love unbounded
Ever holds sway

Let me while living ever shed
The light of truth upon the way
Where men in sin and darkness tread
And go astray

Give me a pulpit to proclaim
The wonder of the love of God
'The servant' Blessed by His name
Who spares the rod.

My utmost done let me die:
No past or future there to tread!
I'll see the love-light in His eye
When I am dead.
