PSALM OF LOVE
Psalms, for me anyway, are about praying. Since I hope everyone has some sort of experience of love, perhaps this one doesn't need an explanation .
- We have no need of words, you and I
heart speaks to heart while we are close together;
- but I also need to say that I love you
I must express my feelings and show you how much I care.
- My heart won't need words to talk to you, my God
and you don't speak in sentences but in a twinkling as quick as a thought;
- nevertheless, words can express my worship
if I speak with you for a second, I may need hours to prepare for it.
- I long to be conscious of your real presence
to be aware of your attention to me in a moment of time.
- Yet as soon as you are with me, I have to turn away from you
a glimpse of heaven makes me want you to send me to hell!
