Then Jacob woke up and thought, “Surely the Lord is in this place, but I did not realize it!”—Gen 28:16 NET
The Parish Priest, of austerity, Climbed up in the high church steeple To be nearer God, that he might hand His word down to the people. And in sermon script he daily wrote What he thought was sent from heaven; And he dropped it down on the people’s heads Two times one day in seven. In his age God said, “Come down and die.” And he cried out from the steeple: “Where art thou, Lord?” And the Lord replied: “Down here among My people.” — Selected.
