prone to wander

Absolutely brought into the presence when I heard this old standard:

O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.

–Come Thou Font of Every Blessing

Honest. Personal. Surrounded on all sides by journey-stanzas. Not to mention that the first sentence is a grammatical marvel–untie that knot if you will. Diagram if you will.

Prone to Wander is a potential name for this site (which will still be hosted at jimmorrow.wordpress.com…). Maybe it’s silly. I’ll think on it.
