O, Great King, I want to go home to Your eternal halls. Your servant is weary; the task is too difficult; the reward too meagre. Is it really the end of all tears and all sorrows? Will our pain in toiling be over. Will we truly see You face to face? It sounds like gain to me. Yet, to live is Christ. It is to give myself in love for others, so that in the end we, as Your Church, may gain some. For their sake, it is more necessary for me to remain, and to toil, and to be poured out. For Your glory Lord. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
