I pant for thee

My heart longs for you
My soul will pant for thee
You are shade for me
In the hottest summer day
Your love is an enormous stretch of shade
In a world without trees
You are peace for my being
You are beauty within my reach
A cold stream to soothe my flesh
From the consequences of living
Your love is a wellspring
Refreshing of my being
You restore my vigor
My youth
My hope
Forgiving of all my flaws
And you are my first love
My heart is moved
By your bountiful mercy
When I hear my name
Being called
By your voice
Even if it is a whisper
