"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 May the Desire of our heart be Him

Words: Bertram H. Shadduck, 1894...

I dreamed that the great judgment morning
Had dawned, and the trumpet had blown;
I dreamed that the nations had gathered
To judgment before the white throne;
From the throne came a bright shining angel,
And he stood on the land and the sea,
And he swore with his hand raised to Heaven,
That time was no longer to be.

And O, what a weeping and wailing,
As the lost were told of their fate;
They cried for the rocks and the mountains,
They prayed, but their prayer was too late.

The rich man was there, but his money
Had melted and vanished away;
A pauper he stood in the judgment,
His debts were too heavy to pay;
The great man was there, but his greatness,
When death came, was left far behind!
The angel that opened the records,
Not a trace of his greatness could find.

The widow was there with the orphans,
God heard and remembered their cries;
No sorrow in Heaven forever,
God wiped all the tears from their eyes;
The gambler was there and the drunkard,
And the man that had sold them the drink,
With the people who gave him the license,
Together in hell they did sink.

The moral man came to the judgment,
But self righteous rags would not do;
The men who had crucified Jesus
Had passed off as moral men, too;
The soul that had put off salvation,
“Not tonight; I’ll get saved by and by,
No time now to think of religion!”
At last they had found time to die.

And O, what a weeping and wailing,
As the lost were told of their fate;
They cried for the rocks and the mountains,
They prayed, but their prayer was too late.


"I found out that God Almighty was looking for men and women who would devote themselves entirely to Him, who would give themselves to Him. I found out that when Jesus died on the cross and paid so great a price, He didn’t do it just to get me out of hell, but He did it that He might possess me for His own, and that I might possess Him for my own. Beloved, this seemed so perfectly wonderful to me that the world lost its charm, and everything in the world lost its charm, and there was a passionate love for Jesus Christ born in my soul.

How did it come about? Prayer, prayer! Jesus Christ says, “Every one that asketh receiveth.” What are you talking about, Lord? Why, He says, “I came that they might have life and have it more abundantly, and here, they forsake Me, the Fountain of Living Water, and they dig fountains that can hold no water.” They’re foul, dug by men: man’s wisdom, man’s knowledge, man’s science. God says, “It’s foolishness.” But “He is made unto us wisdom.'...

What a blessing when the Spirit of God can rebuke you, and you accept His rebuke. “Turn you at my rebuke,” He says. “Behold, I will pour out my Spirit unto you.” And you cannot claim the fullness of the Holy Ghost until you have been convicted...

“Every one that asketh receiveth”—what? Why, the Kingdom! “Every one that seeketh findeth”—what? Why, “Me,” He says. “You’ll find Me.” “Every one that knocketh, to him it shall be opened”—what? Why, that gate into the chambers of the King. Let us pray like never before."

 Re: May the Desire of our heart be Him

Sister I am familiar with the words of this little known hymn. Though written over 100 years ago. The words are just as powerful today. Perhaps more appropriate in these times that we are living in. Very sobering words for us to reflect on.

May we read these word slowly and reflect on their message.

Simply my thiughts.
