Communion with the Divine

Be with us, God, when we draw near,

your touch is neither severe nor fleeting.

 

Your arms and heart are open to us,

penetrating and permeating

with your will, tastes and temperament.

 

Be with us, God, when we draw near,

your touch is gentle and ceaseless.

 

Your enveloping embrace holds us

in communion with us always in all ways,

life received, lived, and surrendered.

 

Be with us, God, when we draw near,

your touch is passionate and complete.

 

We reach out with our whole being

to lose ourselves in divinity,

endless, incorruptible, and undefined

 

Be with us, God, when we draw near,

your touch is life-giving and love-bearing.
