The Spouse

The light of truth revealed Himself to be
An earthen vessel filled with Godly love
Sweet wine of Christ atoned my soul for me
Upon His flight He sent His holy dove

Bequeathed to me somehow this love of mine
O' grace of God rain down on me a fool
To taste such sacred nectar from the vine
Relax Your foot on me Your lone footstool

Ignite the flame of peace inside my heart
Perhaps a chance to climb Your mountaintop
I beg You Lord allow me to take part
Unite my pain and suff'ring to Your cross

I contemplate Your passion on my knees
Come share with me a piece of victory
