I have yet many Things to say unto YouSamuel Greg (18041877)
To souls that can his message bear:
But he throws not pearls away,
Where he finds no listening ear.
Still the more does he bestow:
As our faith doth more believe,
Still his revelations grow.
All the waken’d thought can hold,
That doth Jesus freely speak,
That to listening hearts unfold.
Measured by their power must be
To receive this gift of heaven;
By each one’s capacity.
All their souls as yet can bear:
Wanting more themselves must make
Worthy, able more to hear.
