I Still Haven’t Found…

“But even if I find my way out of the forest, I shall be left with the inconsolable memory of the treasure I went into the forest to find and never found, and which was not there and perhaps is not anywhere?  But if not anywhere, why do I feel guilty at not having found it?”

T. S. Eliot

I have climbed highest mountains
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you
I have run
I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like a fire
I was burning inside her

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

I believe in the Kingdom Come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
But yes I’m still running

You broke the bonds
And you loosed the chains
Carried the cross
Of my shame
Oh my shame
You know I believe it

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for
The hope purchased for us by Jesus is this: Our longing for something real, transcendent, and true will not go unfulfilled forever. A long time, maybe, but not forever. One day He will come and set things to rights. Oppression will be over. My struggle against myself will be over. And as Jesus wipes the last tears from our tired eyes, we will know one thing: peace. Until then, let’s walk together through the long night and into the sunrise. It will be beautiful.

“The grey rain-curtain turned all to silver glass and was rolled back. 
And he beheld white shores and beyond them a far green country 
under a swift sunrise.”-Tokien, Return of the King
