I Shall Not Want ..

And to add something more positive after what has been a very heavy series of posts ..
I shall not want. My every want You fill
With Your own self, o Bounty from above!
All of my dark is but the wait for dawn -
Then You shall shine in fullness of Your love.

Then You shall shine on me, and warm the cold,
Moon-blighted barrens of my frozen heart,
And I shall thaw into fecundity,
As Your dear grace pervades my every part

Then shall my frozen spring be living stream
Watering fruit where only thistles grew.
I shall become creation's living proof:
Showing forth that You will make all things new!
