More Real than Anything

Hudson Taylor was a British missionary to China. When he died in 1905, his Bible was found with a slip of paper as a bookmark. On that paper was written a prayer that Hudson prayed every day. It read:
Lord Jesus make Thyself to me
A living bright reality
More present to faith's vision keen
Than any outward object seen
More near, more intimately nigh
Than e'en the sweetest earthly tie
HT: Martyn Lloyd-Jones, preaching on Galatians 2:20
