so lovely, so sweet

17 lines of meditation

Your voice is lovely.

Your presence is so sweet.


You captivate me, move me, woo me, compel me.

You speak, and I listen.

You stir, and I respond.

You stop, and I press in.


Take me there, take me to that secret place with You.

Because I know I cannot enter alone, but only by Your hand, hand-in-hand.

Let me feel the tender mercy of Your touch.


I need You, Lord.

And not only need, but I want You.

I desire You.


The heart wants, and I want for You.

The soul thirsts, and I thirst for You.

When can I be in Your presence again?


So lovely.

So sweet.
