O God, I Have Tasted Thy Goodness

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more.  I am painfully conscious of my need for further grace.  I am ashamed of lack of desire.  O God, the Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still.  Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee that so I may know Thee indeed.  Begin in mercy a new work of love within me.  Say to my soul, "Rise up , my love, my fair one, and come away."  Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long.
In Jesus' name,
A.W. Tozer
