Let distractions, delusions, deceptive delights, and disarming duplicity be forgotten. Despite the cost, there is but one Desire worth desiring. That "one thing" the psalmist sought. A closeness with the Man of Sorrows, the Master, the Redeemer, the Conquering King.  

"...Praise our God, all ye His servants, and ye that fear Him, both small and great." Revelation 19:5.

When afflicted for My sake
Remember Me.
When oppressed and soon to break
Remember Me.
When rejected on this earth,
Don't forget to Me you're worth
Every cross I bore from birth.
Remember Me.

When your duties seem severe
Remember Me.
When like mountains they appear
Remember Me.
When your burdens are too great,
When they have a dreadful weight,
Then My own cross contemplate.
Remember Me.

When you'd shrink from the ordeal
Remember Me.
When too great the pain you feel 
Remember Me.
For I live to intercede,
I, who answers human need,
I, who also in this lead.
Remember Me.*
