Worn out am I, my God, for your love I do not know;
I have been your faithful servant, yet not known you.
So heartfelt were Your truths to me that I found
comfort within them; heartbreaking it is that I
had not loved You.
A sense of obligation do I feel towards You;
this heart does not house reverence.
So great did those childhood scars mark themselves
upon my faith that they have seized me.
A weary spirit I possess and a willingness that fades;
this frail body fails and drops in weakness.
This life, Lord my God, I cannot live, for without
love of You am I unsatisfied.
Teach that unconditional love to this unloving servant;
impress upon him a reverence and awe of You.
Write into my being who You are that I may know You
in full measure.
The mind knows Your nature, yet the heart is lacking.
This life I cannot live without You as You are my peace
and joy; a steady foundation I found in You that I could
build without sinking.
