Kingsley Olaleye Reuben


Of True Love


My vision is faded into all that is mentally blind,
What I want I search and obviously do not find.
For what I seek is not what I need, in a world dying in the dust,
All I need is You father in heaven- in Your word I trust.
The heart of my soul cries even though my flesh is for a time sated,
Nothing satisfies my soul except Your love, so I give mine though belated.
So let Your holy fire burn within me so by no impurity my soul be bound,
Your love is complete, final and enough and in me let it be found.
