Shall I compare You to the lily
Which adorns the velvet green
Or the violet so very small yet
Its color leaves one spellbound
That even the most savage of beasts
Finds itself bewildered by its beauty
For Your beauty Lord inspires the eyes
Taking captive the thoughts of one’s heart
You are the perfect love for the seasons
The many timeless moments of each day
Your youthfulness is wonderfully preserved
Leaving me unable to compare a single beauty
To you because you are truly captivating
My God, you are the true endless masterpiece
There is not a treasure as lovely as You are
For you are a truly wonderful perfect gem
And is that not the reason You are my God…
You are flawless in your grace and love
Which you share with my heart each day
There will never be a place I would rather
Be, than to be in your presence always.
Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right
hand. You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward, you will take me into glory.
Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has
nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart
may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and
my portion forever.
Psalm 73: 27-28
Those who are far from you will perish;
you destroy all who are unfaithful to you.
But as for me, it is good to be near God.
I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge;
I will tell of all your deeds.
