Lyrics


by Charles Hiestand

My purpose is love
My soul, of me
My passion
is Her

And for mind
For mind and body
Her bright aspect
and my emptiness
are reason enough
are reason enough

And all alone
And in my loneliness
I cling to hope
She might see in me
Her destiny
Her destiny

Then set the stage
with the common things of our lives
where She plays and sings in divine light
and bewitched, I watch in rapture

How has my God
my God assembled me?
that my soul should show Her image
My love apparent in Her visage
How deep the abyss
How bright the light

(Fugue)
How deep the abyss
How bright the light
The divine light

Then set the stage for mind and heart
with the numinous objects of our lives
where She dances and sings in divine light
and bewitched, I play with joy and sorrow

My purpose is love
My soul, of me, is Her
My lover
