To Know You is to be in Your Light

Eternal Father,
may Your Name be hallowed.
To know You is eternal Life,
to know You is to know the Truth.
Father of all Wisdom, sanctify me
with Your Holy Spirit so that
my heart will utter sayings full
of wisdom.
Unique and Perfect,
source of Sublime Love,
Your Majesty, ravish my heart to
praise You night and day.
Fountain of Myrrh and Aloes,
fragrance my wretched soul
with Your delicate fragrance so
that when I meet My King and
Your Beloved Son,
He will not turn His Eyes away from me.
To know You is to be in Your Light,
this Light which will show me
the Way,
and draw me in Your Beloved
Son's Footsteps.
Well of Living Water come,
come and immerse me your child
in Your Stream that flows profusely
out of Your Sanctuary.
O God! I love You to tears!
Let my wretched soul long for
all that is Holy;
let my soul taste Your Tenderness.
Yahweh, You are my God;
I praise Your Name,
for You have looked upon my wretched
soul and filled it with the
brightness of Your Glory.
My heart now sings to You Father;
my spirit rejoices in Your Spirit.
O God, my Father,
allow my soul to succumb in Your
Loving Arms
by setting Your Seal on my heart
so that my love for
You becomes stronger
than Death itself. Amen.
