Ever deeper

1. Jesus,
Draw me ever deeper –
Deep into your flesh,
So I may share your sorrow
And your reign.

2. Mary,
Draw me ever deeper –
Deep into your mind,
So I may share your gladness
And your pain.

3. Father,
Draw me ever deeper –
Deep into your heart,
So I may share your kingdom
And your feast.

4. Spirit,
Draw me ever deeper –
Deep into your soul,
So I may share your sighing
Without cease.
