George Herbert (April 3, 1593 – March 1, 1633) was a Welsh poet, orator and a priest. Throughout his life he wrote religious poems characterized by a precision of language, a metrical versatility, and an ingenious use of imagery or conceits that was favored by the metaphysical school of poets. He is best remembered as a writer of poems and hymns such as "Come, My Way, My Truth, My Life" and "The King of Love My Shepherd Is." (Summary from Wikipedia)

Consolation

(5 Sterne)

Almost two years ago I thought I was going to be paralyzed and blind and institutionalized for life. At that time I felt that Herbert and Euclid would be my great friends in the dark. The thought was my comfort and salvation. Fortunately I recovered, and I now enjoy sight, strength, and freedom. I was right to look to Herbert for consolation in times of great trial, but he has also a sacred ordinariness that makes him equally suited to my season of restoration and healing. I’m thankful for this superb reading by Barnes.
