Bring us into Your Palace
by Avril Meallem
Bookmark and Share
 

My King, Creator of all
I cry from the very essence of my being —
remember us!

Your cycle of nature continues to turn —
birds sing their morning song
flower buds open up their glory
rain falls and the wind blows,
all seemingly oblivious to our suffering.

You created the world
and formed mankind to be your partner,
to use the gifts You blessed us with —

hands
feet
language
music
colours
everything with which to be creators too.

But so many have turned against You,
have destroyed that which You created,
used the tools You blessed us with
for cruelty and degradation.

We stand before You now,
nations in pain,
we cry out in supplication
and humbly acknowledge
that alone we cannot prevail.

Your servants bow their heads in shame,
we have sinned,
betrayed Your love.
Help us return to your fold,
gather in your flocks,
bring us into Your palace,
we have suffered for so long

Let the true spirit within each of us
shine out to the world,
be examples of love and compassion
humility and morality —
a shining light in the prevailing darkness.

Almighty God,
in our distress and with one voice
we humbly cry out —

we need You now,
the World needs You now.
