Take me to the cross…

Purge me from selfishness, the fear of man, the love of approbation, the shame of being thought old-fashioned, the desire to be cultivated or modern. Take away my roving eye, curious ear, greedy appetite, lustful heart…. Then take me to the cross and leave me there. May I never dally with the world and its allurements, but walk by thy side, listen to thy voice, be clothed with thy graces, and adorned with thy righteousness.

The Valley of Vision, quoted in Stand Fast In the Way of Truth by Douglas Bond, p. 266
