Abba, Father

Abba, Father, 
I love you;
And, to my amazement, 
You love me. 

Abba, Father,
I love you;
And, to my delight,
You set me free. 

Abba, Father,
I love you;
And, to my relief,
You heal my soul.

Abba, Father,
I love you;
And, to my great joy, 
You make me whole.

Lord,
Today, in contemplation,

In unity with you,
Would I experience
That wholeness all the time?
