The Hound of Heaven

Standard

Here comes my English major moment for the month. The Hound of Heaven is a poem written by English poet Francis Thompson (1859-1907).  It’s long (182 lines) so I’ll just give you a taste here.  Of course, the Hound of Heaven is God.  If you’ve ever felt like God was pursuing you ( and He is–while we were still sinners, He died for us) you might like to look it up and read the whole thing.
