I praise you for your love,
your exuberant, exhilarating delight,
your lively, happy, captivating joy,
so close, so intimate,
and yet utterly holy, wild, unknown.
You are an all-consuming fire,
cleansing, burning, refining away
all that hinders your love,
and your love always wins.
Patient, kind, and long-suffering,
you always wait for my stumbling steps,
and cherish my willing, bumbling heart,
and you give me time and space,
in every stage,
in all my imperfections.
Your love sets me free,
to follow you,
to dance with your Word,
to obey and love you back,
I delight in your love,
your joy in me is my strength.
I bless you and love you Lord,
