Here I am again in this place to meet with You. There are always so many thoughts on my mind about how I should spend my time here. In all of those things, which I do want to talk with You about, I simply say that I’d like to draw near to You today.
How priceless is Your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of Your wings. They feast on the abundance of Your house; You give t hem drink from Your river of delights. For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light. (Psalm 36:7-9)
Draw me, Lord, into the light of Your presence.
Make me to feast on Your goodness, oh God.
Quench my soul-thirsts with Your river of delight
And drench me beneath Your fountain of life.
All my life’s goodness is found within You.
All my life’s sadness is lifted by You.
All my soul’s hunger and thirsting for life
is met beyond measure in You.
