In Pursuit Of...? ? ?


Happiness yet something lack,
Joyful…yet not up to the mark,
Parents, friends, brothers, sisters all I have:
Still emptiness prevails in my heart.
Of all these something lags behind!

All night long on my bed,
I looked for the one, my heart loves
I browsed among the people.., yet not found
I slept but my heart was awake
Then at once HOLY SPIRIT came upon my head.
I found what I am searching for:
My love, my strength, my refuge…
Whatnot everything is HE,
Who won my heart with his love on CROSS OF CALVARY!

Now no thought of abandonment,
For my heart delights in CHRIST.
