A selection from The Dark Guest - The Valley of Vision

O my crucified but never wholly mortified sinfulness!
O my life-long damage and daily shame!
O my indwelling and besetting sins!
O the tormenting slavery of a sinful heart!
Destroy, O God, the dark guest within whose hidden presence makes my life a hell.
Yet thou hast not left me here without grace;
The cross still stands and meets my needs in the deepest straits of the soul.
