Her Mirror Dim

17 06 2014

Hope holds to Christ the mind’s own mirror out
To take His lovely likeness more and more.
It will not well, so she would bring about
An ever brighter burnish than before
And turns to wash it from her welling eyes
And breathes the blots off all with sighs on sighs.
Her glass is blest but she as good as blind
Holds till hand aches and wonders what is there;
Her glass drinks light, she darkles down behind,
All of her glorious gainings unaware.

I told you that she turned her mirror dim
Betweenwhiles, but she sees herself not Him.

Gerard Manley Hopkins

1 Corinthians 13:12

Lexham English Bible 

For now we see through a mirror in an indirect image, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know completely, just as I have also been completely known.

Romans 8:28-30

Lexham English Bible 

 And we know that all things work together for good for those who love God, for those who are called according to his purpose, because those whom he foreknew, he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, so that he should be the firstborn among many brothers.  And those whom he predestined, these he also called, and those whom he called, these he also justified, and those whom he justified, these he also glorified.
