What is it that beckons me forward?
Not mortal or extinguishable,
lacking in a desire that keeps my soul in hope
I find no pleasure in the temporary
Yet I look and search for the glimpses of You here
That is what I live for
to find You in such a desperate existence
and somehow thrust it into view
"I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living."
