The Prayer of the Longing Heart.

There was one who for a long while, amidst the mercies of God, and also many sorrows, longed continually that God would release the soul and take her to Himself. And the Lord said to her, “Wait.” Then did the suffering one answer, “Lord, I cannot cease from longing. Oh, how gladly would I be with Thee!” Then said the Lord—

“Before the worlds, O soul, I longed for thee;

And still I long, and thou dost long for Me;

And when two longings meet, for ever stilled,

The cup of love is filled.”
