None beside you

Father,
There is none beside you
But the Son, in heaven above.

Jesus, 
There is none beside you
But the Spirit, who is Love.  

Spirit,
There is none beside you
But the Mother of the Lamb.

Mary,
There is none beside you   
But our God, the great I AM.

Never let me go

Oh, my Lord,
I love you so.

Forgive me;
Never let me go 

Until I enter
Heaven’s gate,

Where I will no more
Watch and wait.

Oh, my Lord,
I love you so.

Please help me;
Never let me go  

Until I reach  
Your open door

To dwell in you
For evermore.

Oh, my Lord,
I love you so.

Please hold me;  
Never let me go

Until I fall 
On bended knee,  

To worship you 
Eternally.

Just like you

I need not ask 
What others think
Before I make my mind up —
Just like you, Lord.

I need not  judge 
What others want
Before I grasp my feelings — 
Just like you. 

I need not wait
For others to agree     
Before I speak out boldly — 
Just like you, Lord.

I need not watch 
To see how others act
Before I do what’s right, Lord –
Just like you.

Every hour

Every hour, Lord, 
Brings me closer
To the time 
When I will quit this body.

Every second
Brings me closer 
To the time 
When I will see your face.

Every moment
Brings me closer
To the time
When I will hear you speaking.

Every instant
Brings me closer
To the timeless peace 
Of your embrace.

One with you

Lord, 
We’re one with you 
Before our birth —

One light with you; 
One truth; one peace; 
One love.

We thirst for you
In exile, 
Here on earth;

Then reunite 
With you,
In heaven above.
