A Litany for the Weary



*Inspired by the writings of Brennan Manning


To the weary, to those who are run off their feet.  To the lonely, to the overwhelmed, to those who have reached a dead end.  To the hungry, to the dry, to the fearful.  Come and feast.  Come and sit.  Come and drink.  Here where our soul’s longing and our great need collide.  God, we long for You and we need You.  We cry out to You to fill us and we cry out, Abba Father, have mercy.

Lord God Almighty, Creator, Maker of all, breath of life.

ABBA, I belong to You.

Jesus, Light in my darkness.  Jesus, Peace for my soul.

ABBA, I belong to You.

God of Salvation, rescue us.  God of Salvation, draw near.    

ABBA, I belong to You.

Father in Heaven, You hold all things, and you hold us.  Shelter us in Your unfailing Love.  

ABBA, I belong to You.

In the current of chaos, in the noise of disorder, and in the voices that clamour at our heels: God is holding on.  God is holding on.  God is holding on.

ABBA, I belong to You.

We rest in this grace.  We breathe in this promise.  We stand upon this sure foundation.

ABBA, I belong to You.  ABBA, I belong to You.
