When I was weak, you gave me strength to keep moving.
When I was poor, you gave me my daily bread.
When I was reckless, you patiently waited for me.
When I was faithless, you were faithful.
When I failed you, you forgave.
When I was lost, you guided me steps.
When I was proud, you humbled me.
When I was sad, you comforted me.
When I despaired, you spoke words of encouragement.
When was I happy and you were not the core of my delight?
When was I fulfilled and you were not the one who filled me?
Why do I run from you, when you have always been all I needed?
Why do I forget you when you remind me in a thousand ways that you are near?
Why do I disobey you when your will is only for my good?
You love me though I can give you nothing in return.
It is in my nature to need you.
It is in your nature to give.
These mysteries at the center of existence I will never comprehend.
This mystery at the heart of everything, your love.
