Love bade me welcome; yet my soul drew back,

Guilty of dust and sin.

But quick-eyed Love, observing me grow slack

From my first entrance in,

Drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning

If I lacked anything.



"A guest," I answered "worthy to be here";

Love said "You shall be he."

"I, the unkind, ungrateful? Ah, my dear,

I cannot look on Thee."

Love took my hand, and smiling did reply

"Who made the eyes but I?"



"Truth, Lord; but I have marred them: let my shame

Go where it doth deserve."

"And know you not," says Love "who bore the blame?"

"My dear, then I will serve."

"You must sit down," says Love "and taste my meat."

So I did sit and eat.

.: :.

The purpose of “Love” is to inform the reader that although we are sinful human beings, we can find redemption in Jesus’ saving blood. The poem teaches us that even though it may be difficult for us to comprehend, we can be loved eternally because of the cross. Line nine and ten of page 222 says, “’I, the unkind, ungrateful? Ah, my dear, I cannot look on Thee.’” Then we see Love’s wonderful response in line 15, “’And know you not,’ says Love, ‘Who bore the blame?’”
