Other One

Inspired by this praise song:
“I love you Lord, And I lift my voice….”
 http://www.songlyrics.com/laurie-klein/i-love-you-lord-lyrics/

Eyeless, earless Other One,
You nonetheless and evermore
Know me.

You see all the edges of my being;
You hear the lies of my mouth;
You feel into every nook and cranny where I hide;
You smell the stink of my diseases and taste my bitterness.

Eyeless, earless Other One,
You nonetheless and evermore
Know me.

You see the pulses of my vulnerability;
You hear the love songs in my heart;
You feel the passion of my response to You.
You smell the fragrance of my joy and taste the sweetness in our union.

O eyeless, earless Other One,
You nonetheless and evermore
 Know me,

    Love me,

        Fill me with Yourself.
