All of my life I’ve been looking for your face, but today I have seen it. Today I have seen the charm, the beauty, the unfathomable grace of the face that I was looking for.
Today I have found you and those who laughed and scorned me yesterday are sorry that they were not looking.
I am bewildered by the magnificence of your beauty and wish to see you with a hundred eyes. My heart has burned with passion and searched forever for this wondrous beauty that I now behold.
I am ashamed to call this love human and afraid of God to call it divine. My soul is screaming in ecstasy. All of my being is in love with you.
Your brilliance lit a fire in my heart and you’ve made radiant for me the earth and sky. My arrow of love has arrived at the target and I am in the house of mercy and my heart is a place of prayer.
All of my life I’ve been looking for your face, but today I have seen it.
