A Place of Springs

Blessed are those on pilgrimage Passing through their desert times They see the wilderness transformed As pools of rain refresh their hearts.

Passing through their desert times They focus on the waiting prize Frail feet are strengthened as they go

They see the wilderness transformed From barrenness and shifting sand To wonderlands of bud and bloom

As pools of rain refresh their hearts Joy bubbles like a spring and then It overflows at journey’s end.

(Based on Psalm 84:5-7; published in Penned from the Heart, Vol. 21, 2014, Son-Rise Publications, New Wilmington, PA, p. 77-78, compiled by Marilyn Nutter)
