A Prayer to the Saviour

 

Good and precious Saviour, we do indeed rejoice that Thou, who hast suffered so much for us, hast now fulfilled all things, and art now at rest with Thy Father, whatever may be Thine active love for us.  Oh that we knew and loved Thee better!  But still we can say in fullness of heart, Come quickly, Lord!  Leave once more the throne of Thy rest and of Thy personal glory, to come to take us to Thyself, that all may be fulfilled for us also, and that we may be with Thee and in the light of Thy Father’s countenance and in His house.  Thy grace is infinite, but Thy presence and the joy of the Father shall be the rest of our hearts, and our eternal joy.

 

(J N Darby,  Synopsis on John 14)
