GOD'S LOVE: POEM

Within and without, thy searching glance

And ever-present voice follows me

Sounding from the depths of my heart

Overflowing with awe-struck glee

And this fear that envelopes

Keeping my shoulders warm

This fear that teaches me

Strikes me with alarm

This novelty I find

In thy great presence

Makes me shudder

At the thought of your lessons

A hard task lies ahead

For one who wishes to love you

For one who cannot do without

But in your footsteps, pursue

Half-hunted, half-starved

Half-delirious with hope

Yet full filled with the peace

That helps one cope

Looking for that

Which will always be hidden

Whose voice commands

Me, to do as I am bidden

A terrifying love

Thou strewest about me

It’s weight bearing me down

For all eternity
