The Desert Between

Spiritual Lessons

Image result for desert

The desert between
My Egypt and land
The land that He promised
To give by His hand

A hard place to travel
Without any pleasure
No riches of Egypt
Or Canan-land treasures

Emptied and willing
Swept of past dreams
Ideals all forsaken
My heart now made clean

My solitude fill, Lord
My reproach gladly bear
Let duty be privilege
Your cross sweetly share

Let service be freedom
And sacrifice joy
Let praise be my spirit
Your shackles enjoyed 

Your limits are blessings
A boundary of care
Protection of mercy
A shield I will bear 

This desert between
I meekly will trod
With joy and thanksgiving 
For here I belong.
