There is no peace for the wicked. There is no rest for the unfaithful. But none is loyal, none seeks His face. No one loves his neighbor, or looks to give mercy to the stranger. Every man lies in wait to condemn his brother. With fervent lust he desires to destroy the innocent. Though there are not many innocent; yet he will eagerly give his soul and take an oath to save a beast of the earth; but violently murders one whom the Lord has created in His own image.
There is none like You.
There is none like You. And our righteousness is as filthy rags. O Lord. Who can stand before Your Holiness? Who? Not one. Invade my dirty heart, my Lord. You touched the outcast leper. You were willing. You forgave the sinful women. You invited the sinner to worship in Your Presence. You filled the hungry and gave rest to the weary. Even so, Lord Jesus, Amen!
I have taken an oath to You, o Lord, and my spouse has not anulled it. I shall not speak for three days. Sew my lips together in my own iniquities, let silence cover my being to the very division of bone and marrow. Blessed be the Name of the Lord.
For You are worthy, o my Lord, to open the scroll and to look at it. You are innocent and without blemish. Your faithfulness reaches to the sky. My soul waits for Your Peace. I convulse with intense longing to see You. Darknessis what I see...even in my very own heart. But Your Light gives tenderly to the soul of man, hope. Blessed be the Name of the Lord.
If I were able to decide my own place, and God were to grant the very least of His maidservants one and only request; then I would immediately prostrate and humble myself with my face to the dirt and cry out to the Lord. That I could be a creature that did not depart from the Goodness of His Presence and the Glory of His Majesty. That I were granted to be a creature before Him with my face to the ashes crying out day and night and never ever ceasing to proclaim "BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD!!! HOLY HOLY HOLY IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!!! WHO WAS, AND WHO IS, AND WHO IS TO COME!!!"
Even so, Lord Jesus, Let it be!!!
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
