"And make my heart Thy peaceful throne."

— Wesley, John and Charles

"And make my heart Thy peaceful throne."
Metaphor in Context
The sight without the touch compell'd
His incredulity to yield,
And by Thy bleeding wounds subdued,
Thomas replied, My Lord, my God!
Thy wounds alone can conquer me,
Convince of Thy Divinity,
Assure that God is all my own,
And make my heart Thy peaceful throne.
