We Are Thirsty
Not thirsty for fame, possessions, passion,
or romance. We've drunk from those pools.
They are salt water in the desert. They don't
"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for
Righteousness. That's it. That's what we are
thirsty for. We're thirsty for a clean conscience.
We crave a clean slate. We yearn for a fresh start.
We pray for a hand which will enter the dark
cavern of our world and do for us the one thing
we can't do for ourselves-make us right again.
The Applause of Heaven
