I stood and pondered on your love and goodness to the Israelites.
You were so good to them yet they took your love for granted :
They called upon you and you sent them your word.
It was sweet, yea as sweet as honey to their taste.
Then they disobeyed you and you made them drink of your wrath.
It was bitter, yea as bitter as the waters at marah.
I sat down and meditated on your goodness to all of us who believe in you and I began to pray thus :
O, how merciful and longsuffering are you towards us.
Your love is as the fountain of life bringing freshness and life to us. Your words are like honey. They are very sweet to our taste.
When you get angry with us, you depart from us and we feel bitterness.
We have worm-wood experiences and are not comforted on all sides.
O Lord, we don`t want you to depart from us.
Let your love continue to flow unto us as rivers and let your words ever refresh us.
We don't want to be weary.
Strengthen us, O Strength of Zion.
Come into our house,
for we wait for you
even all of us of your house.
Come revive us.
Come give us strength,
for we are weary.
Come give us of your sweet drink,
from your brook, for we thirst.
Come give us drink
from your spring of living water
that we may live.
For this we groan,
daily crying at your feet,
looking unto you
that you may give us
that which we desire.
Deliver us from faults
for they weaken us and make us bitter,
giving us no strength.
Oh! that we may appear holy before you
and be constantly filled with your Holy Spirit
and live like our Lord Jesus at all times. Amen!
