Quote for the Week

“John Donne (1572-1631), whose poetry can soar into a word-music of incomparable power, penned ‘Hymn to God My God, in My Sickness’ after a grave illness. He pictures himself just outside heaven’s door, tuning up to the sounds of the throng on the other side, just as a child might sneak into the back of an orchestral rehearsal and try tuning her instrument to the sounds of the great ensemble she hopes one day to join…

Since I am coming to that holy room,
Where, with thy choir of saints for evermore,
I shall be made thy music; as I come
I tune the instrument here at the door,
And what I must do then, think here before.”

Jeremy Begbie, Resounding Truth (London: SPCK, 2007), p. 308
