Out of the flames of affliction

I brought you at great length;

I bare you upon eagle's wings

over trials beyond your strength.

 

I did it for one reason,

to bring you unto Me.

Your eyes look on my promises,

but their fullfillment you can't see.

 

Your heart longs for the meager crumbs

of a kingdom cold and dark,

and cannot see the banquet

prepared inside My heart.

 

Communion with the most High God,

true abandon in His love,

is the feast the Lamb provided

when He shed for us His blood

 

and allowed us to come unto Him,

the purpose of the wings

He supplies through revelation

and the joy repentance brings.
