• “Faith’s most severe tests come not when we see nothing, but when we see a stunning array of evidence that seems to prove our faith vain.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Lord, Thou Know­est All the Hun­ger by Freda Hanbury Allen

Lord, Thou knowest all the hunger
Of the heart that seeks Thee now;
How my soul hath long been craving
What Thou only canst bestow.

Seeking now, seeking now,
Let Thy Spirit meet me now.

Failure in my walk and witness,
Failure in my work I see;
Fruitless toil, un-Christlike living,
Calling forth no praise to Thee.

Seeking now, seeking now,
Let Thy Spirit meet me now.

Now to Thee my soul confesses
All its failure, all its sin;
All the pride, the self-contentment,
All the “secret faults” within.

Seeking now, seeking now,
Let Thy Spirit meet me now.

Save me from myself, my Father,
From each subtle form of pride;
Lead me now with Christ to Calvary,
Show me I with Him have died.

Seeking now, seeking now,
Let Thy Spirit meet me now.

No more let it be my working
Nor my wisdom, love or power,
But the life of Jesus only,
Passing through me hour by hour.

Seeking now, seeking now,
Let Thy Spirit meet me now.

Let the fullness of Thy spirit
Resting on Him cover me,
That the witness borne to others,
May bring glory, Lord, to Thee.

Seeking now, seeking now,
Let Thy Spirit meet me now.

Father, in Thy Son’s name, pleading,
I believe my prayer is heard;
And I praise Thee for the answer,
Resting simply on Thy Word.

Praising now, praising now,
Thou hast answered, Lord, I know!

    Amazingly and scripturally sound. As a writer of scripture based poetry and short stories myself, I am encouraged and strengthened by Freda Hanbury's inspired writings. I found her , "Wait Upon God," in a Andrew Murray book I have. Both are a wonderful support that makes me read the holy scriptures more, and thereby love God and Christ with much deeper intimacy and commitment.

Verse of the Day

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. — 1 John 4:18 (NKJV)
