Contemplation of the Character of God: Second Revision
~~My Heavenly Lover is in the wind and the sun and the stars
and everything good and pleasing.~~
Before the last tear falls ~
You Are Seen, in a flash, all else is pale,
Dwindled, faded in comparison to Your Glory,
Beholden at last by an Entire Soul.
A Hand, outstretched from the Everlasting Arms,
Mutes the temporal blow.
Burning Eyes shed tears of holy anguish: this precious child's
Mortal pain is never overlooked.
Your grasp warms what has grown cold with gentleness,
You make the world go away,
Rocking away nightmarish fears.
You make the world go away.
