O Reviver of Deserts, Come
Isaiah 35:1 The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad, the desert shall rejoice and blossom; like the crocus, it shall blossom abundantly . . .
O Reviver of Deserts, Come~
Revive our barren world
in all the places
where gladness seems absent,
where compassion is scarce.
Enter in with your renewing joy
and transforming love.
Remind us of the power
of an encouraging word, a gentle touch,
of a listening ear, a consoling gesture,
that we may plant the promise
of your love and joy
to blossom in the deserts of our world.
