How I love thee as I sin,
How I love thee as I cry;
How I love the as I look upon
The work your hands have made.
But I fear I fall more and more
In love with You for Your Works,
I want to fall in love with you.
I am in my works
I am He:
and is to come.
I am He who gives mercy on whom I will,
And I have
opened your eyes
Given you life, given you freedom
And you have taken my mercy,
My favored child whom I love.
This, this Beauty before you: Take it.
I give freely to you; Love it.
Partake in all my Goodness- Taste it.
Come, rest thy head in me
My beloved child whom I love.
Feel me more in you,
and to you,
and through you.
Seek not me ( because you can’t).
Just fix your eyes,
open your arms,
and allow Me
To allure you with all that is before you;
Allow me to smash your idols as I
Whisper tenderly in your ear:
That you will allow this burden to fall
And just taste
(that’s all you will need,
but return as you might,
To all Beauty I surround you with.)
Child, just taste and you will see
I am Good.
I do all things for the sake of my children,
I love you.
