is a gift you bring, O Beloved Master,
like a promise whispered in the depths of a grieving heart,
lost in remorse for its sin,
a gift that will bloom like the fairest rose
held in the hand a lover,
this joy you give us,
undying even in the midst of our pain and sorrow
offered freely by the most generous of hearts.
Thus is the joy you plant within our hearts, Beloved Master,
a gift like a glowing gem,
a pearl filled with the promise of heaven,
in purity, perfection,
a taste of that perfect joy we shall know
when walking those streets
where you are the king entrhroned.
Be enthroned in my heart,
O Master, O King, O most perfect Beloved,
You who bought that pearl so dearly,
giving your all so that you might offer all
the joy that comes from walking with you
hand in hand,
from darkness into the light.
O Beloved Lord,
here at your feet,
in the perfect joy that only you can provide,
may I find my true home forever.
