The Water Song (reprise)

Come, oh come! let us away–
Lower, lower every day,
Oh, what joy it is to race
Down to find the lowest place.
This the dearest law we know–
“It is happy to go low.”
Sweetest urge and sweetest will,
“Let us go down lower still.”
Hear the summons night and day
Calling us to come away.
From the heights we leap and flow
To the valleys down below.
Always answering to the call,
To the lowest place of all.
Sweetest urge and sweetest pain,
To go low and rise again.  – Hannah Hannard.

A reprise of a previous post I did sometime ago. I have always loved this part in the Hinds Feet on High places. The water doesn’t care in the slightest what may be around the bend or over a cliff. It flows in the path where it was carved out for them and even rushes along with joyous abandon. It has fun too. I struggle to be able to abandon myself in such overwhelming trust and carefree living. Somehow my real self is still inside I can feel it aching to come out and be free again. It’s enough to make me weep at times.

Help me Jesus to go to the lowest place of all and to do it with joy and thanksgiving.

Till Jesus wills it,
