From the Pit

O Lord,
You have brought me from the pit of sin
To the low of frustration
And from the darkness of frustration into Your light.
It is in Your light I see light,
O Power of my power,
Strength of my strength.
You have forgiven every wrong and transgression,
And You cover my doubts with Your mercy,
My fears with Your comfort,
My helplessness with Your love,
My wanderings with Your compassion,
My emptiness with Your fullness,
My appetite with Your sufficiency,
My sorrows with Your grace.
Let me be as Your Son -
Despised and rejected in this world,
Rich and satisfied in the next.
And now, Father, let me turn to my brothers
And comfort them with the comfort by which You have comforted me.
