O God, my Mother,
my heart yearns for you;
my soul desires you,
my body longs for you,
I am in a dry and dreary land
where there is no water.
I am still in your presence, though
Embrace me and give me peace and equanimity.
Your love is better than life,
I sing in harmony with you.
I walk with you always in all ways,
I feel the hug of your mercy and protection.
I am satisfied by the bread of life;
and my thirst is quenched with living wine.
Despite the most disturbing of night watches,
I cultivate my blessings and graces.
I sleep in calmness and rest assured
You are with me everyday in every way.
in the silence I feel your attendance.
My soul clings to you;
you hold the tension of pain and hope with me.
Take away my fear and doubts;
and give me courage, strength, and patience.
My enemies will be vanquished
My foes will be crushed.
My God and my Mother;
thank you for my angels,
thank you for embracing me
thank you for joyousness.
