you who have tasted the world

You who have tasted the world,
who have climbed highest mountains
and run through fields,
only to find emptiness and despair;

You who search diligently,
finding meaning in pleasure
only to have it retreat from you;

You who knew the seeds of pleasure,
but experienced a harvest of pain –

hear the words of He who made you and know:

“Pleasure is from the hand of God.
Who can enjoy anything apart from him?”

May you delight in the Lord.
May you find your pleasure in Him.
