Keeping Company with Amy Carmichael

From Gold By Moonlight, by Amy Carmichael, chapter 3, The Ravine.

          "Love, travelling in the greatness of His strength, 
                    Found me alone, 
            Footsore and tired by the journey's length,
                    Though I had known 
            All the long way many a kindly air,
            And flowers blossomed for me everywhere. 

            And yet Love found me needing Him. He stayed: 
                      Love stayed by me. 
            'Let not thy heart be troubled or dismayed, 
                      My Child,' said He.
            Slipped from me then, all troubles, all alarms,
            For Love had gathered me into His arms."
