Oh, Lord, I hear Your voice call out to me;
it rings in my mind like a resounding gong.
Try as I may to blockade You, I fail at every
turn; You break down the walls I built.
I look on myself with pity and wonder how I
shall get back up.
Your eyes see past my sin and gaze upon me
with unconditional love; Your Presence I desire
to run to, but my legs halt my journey.
The depths of my mind are an open book to
you; every secret and hidden pleasure cannot
evade Your knowledge.
You know of my current struggle and the heavy
burden it places on my shoulders.
I attempt to take away its power, but it regains its
strength and further crushes me.
Thoughts of her penetrate every inch of my conscience;
I am filled with joy and misery.
Her alluring beauty I desire to see, her calming, gentle
voice I long to hear, yet am so distant from.
She brings light to my world; on the darkest day, the
darkness flees in her sight.
My love for her is great, Lord, I cannot move through
this life without her.
What remedy could You bring to ease my pain?
What cure do You have for my condition?
All human treatments fail in the face of this sickness:
the infatuation of my dear love.
Human things last temporarily, but You are forever.
Heal this sickness of mine and cure me of my grief,
so I may find peace and rest in You and You alone.
