The desert and the parched land will exult; the arid plains will rejoice and bloom; they are going to bloom with flowers and rejoice with joyful tune. 
-Isaiah 35:1   (From the lectionary for Introduction)

Some days my soul’s a desert, Lord:
parched, lifeless and thirsting
for waters of mercy, peace and pleasure…

However even deserts dare to hope for a day
when sleek waters flood the plains
and barren lands bloom, a candy oasis
of your presence…

Go to my coronary heart’s desert, Lord:
flood my soul with rivers of your grace:
shade me ‘neath your outstretched arms and
carry to flower all that waits inside me…

Even in the present day, Lord, quench my thirst
with a sip of your grace,
and open my lips
with a tune of joyful reward…
