Oh God, we seek you and we cannot wait to find you.
Our souls are thirsty for you; our legs grow weak with waiting and wandering.
But we have glimpsed your holiness in holy places, we have witnessed your power and your glory.
The truth is that your steady love is better than life, so we must speak up.
With our mouths, with our minds and our whole selves, we seek the rest and proclaim the peace found only in you.
We are satisfied–more than satisfied–in you!
Our thoughts revolve around you. You are our center, the rhythm of our beating hearts, no matter the time or place!
You, O God, have been our help, our protection and our safe place.
In finding you, we are reminded how desperately we seek you.
In being filled, we recall how hungry we are.
We can only bear the waiting because you are our strength and our light!
Lord Jesus, be the strength and light of the world.
Lord Jesus, bring justice, peace and mercy in your coming.
Lord Jesus, bring life from death and make all things new once again.
