Where are They

Where are They?

Where are My children, You cry, where is My bride?
Am I not enough for them, oh, why do they hide?

Not satisfied with My beauty, not satisfied with Me,
Perhaps they have forgotten, for them I hung on the tree.

Can they really know Me, and still not abide?
My Father's beauty and Mine shall draw them aside.

For when they behold Me, their face turned to Mine,
You are enough they will say as they abide my pierced side.

As we behold Him, more beautiful He does become,
Oh, child of Mine gaze on Me, from Me do not run.

For then My longing for you and your beauty to Me,
Will become your longing for more beauty of Me to thee.


~There I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by My glory....And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their God~
Exodus 29:43,45

For many days the beautiful words translated from the old German of Ter Steegen have been in my heart: (Amy Carmichael)

Am I not enough, Mine own? Enough,
Mine own, for thee?

All shalt thou find at last,
Only in Me.
Am I not enough Mine own? I, for ever
and alone, I needing thee?

This goes straight to the heart, Virginia - the cry of the Good Sheperd for His lost sheep. I'm sure it'll touch many a soul. God bless. Suma.
