I love you, Father

 

To say, “I love you, Father”,
Is the same as, “You love me”,
For I am one with you, Lord God,
And you are one with me.

To say, “We love you, Father”,
Is the same as, “You love us”,
For we are one with you, Lord God,
And you are one with us.

To say, “They love you, Father”,
Is the same as, “You love them”,
For they are one with you, Lord God,
And you are one with them.

And though we don’t all love you, Lord,
We know you love us all,
And that you wait for us to turn
To you, and hear your call.

For nothing is separate from you,
And nothing is separate from us.
