Loving Spirit, Dwell Within My Heart

May 10, 2012

Lord, how deep, how wonderful
this mystery of your love for me.

It begins as a stirring of love
Deep within your heart,
This movement of your Spirit
Going forth everywhere
To fill the whole of your creation.

Your love is the greatest grace
Beyond all that you have made,
So how is it that of any space
Where your seeks to rest,
A love that nothing can confine,
It seeks to find a place
Deep within a heart like mine?

How terrible to be caught up, then,
In the routine of everyday things when
I don’t have time to savour your love,
Or worse ignore it, or worse still reject it.

Loving Spirit, dwell within my heart.
So that I may reflect your peace and light.
Amen.
