Tonight the wilderness wins within me
I am wandering the dry and barren land
My Lenten promises scattered like bare bones across the sand.
Tonight I let my anxious self hold sway
And cannot find the sacred way.
Seek you where you may be found;
And call upon you while you are near,
Here, even here, in the wilderness,
Where you say,
Let those who are thirsty, Come,
Come and taste my living water.
Holy One, show me the path to your stream.
Inspired by Isaiah 55
