My dear One, I love you so much.

And sing at the top of my voice.
3. I wish I could beat out wild music
On drums, till they burst.

And turn cartwheels of joy.

And kiss your poor feet.
6. I wish I could cling to your hands,
As we weep for the world.
7. But I can do nothing alone,
So I long for your grace,
8. As I stumble in darkness, and silence, Lord,
Seeking your face.
