Search for Me

'Come, Lord Jesus,
to look for Your servant,
to search for the
tired sheep...
long have I
awaited Your arrival...
Come to me,
for I am disturbed
by the incursions
of the ravening wolves.
Come to me,
for I have been
cast out of Paradise...
I have wandered far from the herd grazing on the heights... You had placed me there,
but the wolf roaming
by night drove me
away from the fold.
Come to look for me,
for I too am seeking You.  Search for me,
find me,
gather me to You,
carry me....'

  1. Beautiful! I must read up on Saint Ambrose!

  2. This is very beautiful, Nancy. How good it is that God seeks us, and we are blessed when we seek Him. It makes me think of this verse from Psalm 34: The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing. Actually, I love the entire chapter; it is so encouraging.
