Accept me, my Lord,
accept me for this while, accept me, my Lord.
Let those orphaned days
that passed without thee, be forgotten.
Only spread this little moment
wide across thy lap, holding it under thy light.
I have wandered in pursuit of voices
that drew me, yet led me nowhere.
Now let me sit in peace and listen to thy words
in the soul of my silence.
Do not turn away thy face from my heart’s
dark secrets, but burn them till they are
alight with thy fire.
