The Lover of My Soul

The Lover of My Soul

My life with God is secret,
My morning prayers from mortal sight.
His love and touch by morning light;
the highlight of my night and day.  
The time I come with You to pray,
I sense Your love – Your love says stay,
This secret love we have in two’s.
you and me and no one else. 
The Lover of my soul!

No one really, really knows, 
You and me and no one else,
the love I feel the love I’ve felt.
The secret place – the secret touch,
secret bride – a secret groom.
The Spirit broods!
My God, my spouse, my honeymoon. 
I feel the touch, I sense the love;
then afterglow of blessings known.
The Lover of my soul!

It’s time to start my day.
My day begins without delay. 
I love Him all my heart.
I love Him all my soul. 
I love Him all my mind.
His strength I need to walk my love.
My love is in my heart,
strength I need – need from above. 
The Lover of my soul!

Receive His Holy Spirit,
Receive His loving touch. 
I love, I love my God so much. 
When faith is hard to find,
and hope is gone or tarnished, 
perplexed, confused in mind. 
The love of God will never fail!
My love for Him, His love for me. 
All stripped away – His love prevails.
The Lover of my soul!

The love of God will never fail!
When I say a word amiss,
when I sin the more than this, 
when I’m weak and frail,
when my life seems awful,
life’s fire, wind, and hail.
When I lose a loved one; 
this is the worst – on earth.
The love of God shall never fail!
My love for him, His love for me prevails. 
The  Lover of my soul!
