What then is worship?

Surely it is the complete occupation with our blessed Lord in which self and surroundings 
are lost to view. 
When the soul pours itself out in adoration 
and whole-hearted devotion.

Worship rises above the joy of sins forgiven and of gratitude for blessings and mercies, 
and centers the thoughts and affections 
upon a person – 
not upon blessings but upon the Blesser. 
It is as we are lost in contemplation of our adorable Lord, occupied with His intrinsic worth, His glories, attributes and virtues, His untold excellencies, His surpassing beauty, 
that our souls are ravished and 
our hearts are bowed at His feet 
in adoration and worship.
