You Are All Abundance

O eternal light, eternal salvation, eternal love, eternal sweetness, let me see you, let me feel you, let me taste you.

O eternal delight, eternal consolation, eternal happiness, let me dwell in you; everything I lack in my misery I find in you.

You are all abundance, and apart from you is nothing but poverty, woe, and misery. Life without you is bitter death. Your kindness is better than life itself. Amen.

(from the book Amish Prayers, compiled by Beverly Lewis)
