So long insecure and aching,
Giving love – but never taking;
Against gifted Love defending.
The pain of love mistaken;
The betrayal of love forsaken
Gives way to God’s love befriending.
Bewildered, but believing,
No longer lies my heart deceiving –
In human love, Your love is fruitful.
My empty heart is full of yearning.
Now in love’s conversion turning,
Knowing You made me deeply beautiful.
