THOSE WHO YEARN

THOSE WHO YEARN
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

We cannot cup salvation,

In our all sufficient hands;
Nor can we reach for blessing,
While in making our demands.

Receiving comes in cleaving,
Not to anything we own;
But emptying out ourselves,
And holding on to God alone.

Needing brings a feeding,
To the hungry, not the whole.
Freedom comes redeeming,
Those imprisoned in the soul.

Filling comes instilling,
Those who yearn for something more.
Healing comes revealing,
Hope to hurting and to poor.

Savior and Sustainer,
Satisfy the lifted cup.
With mercy fill the thirsty,
And the soul ... that's lifted up.
