I feel summoned to dare my hearts single tear
To make Passage to the Dwelling where God is near.
I fathom, immerse, give away the soul’s night
And fall into the wonder of Grace’s might.
With candor and heart’s curl, there is much I did bare.
I placed my full heart in this Divine and sole Care.
It compelled all shadows that I must face.
And motions through fears with grander pace.
My own ferocity and roots run deep.
Time to choose what to leave and what to keep.
The false or hidden possessions of the heart
Pull like rooted thorns that grew deep and apart.
Take all of me, all twine, free mine I pray.
My God, the Joy. I am Thine. Take all this day.
