[Written for the Sentinel]

Lord, I Approach Thee

"And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."—Jeremiah 29:13.

Lord, I approach Thee with praise and thanksgiving,For I have found Thee whom I sought with tears.Thou art near me:Thou art my protection.Thistles and thorns cannot harm me.In the vale of darkness Thou art my light.Thou leadest me; Thou art my help.Thou showest me the depths of eternal Truth,And leadest me to the heights of knowledge.Thou fillest my heart with love. What I do, I accomplishThrough Thy strength: Thou art Life.What I think, I draw from the well of Thy wisdom:Thou art sole intelligence.What I give, I receive from the plenty of Thy grace:Thou art Love.My heart is full of joy and gladness:Thou hast let me find Thee.

We'd love to hear from you!
