Hymn by Brooke Fraser
If to distant lands I scatter
If I sail to farthest seas
Will You find and firm and gather
Till I only dwell in Thee

If I flee from greenest pastures
Would You leave to look for me
Forfeit glory to come after
Till I only dwell in Thee

If my heart has one ambition
If my soul one goal to seek
This my solitary vision
Till I only dwell in Thee
That I only dwell in Thee
Till I only dwell in Thee

- From the album Albertine -

No matter where, no matter how, He will neither leave us nor forsake us. May this be our prayer for the world in which we find ourselves today. May we remember our brothers and sisters suffering in Syria, Egypt and countless other countries (Making sense of the Middle East). May we know His love is stronger than death and may this truth be lived out in our every word and action.

This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him. If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself. 2 Timothy 2:11-13
