To Learn By Paradox

A Puritan Prayer:

Let me learn by paradox that the way down is up.  That to be low is to be high.  That the broken heart is the healed heart.  That the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit.  That the repenting soul is the victorious soul.  That to have nothing is to possess all.  That to bear the cross is to wear the crown.  That to give is to receive.  That the valley is the place of vision.
