For God alone my soul waits in silence
O Love, I silence my soul and its thoughts,
empty of all but my desire for you.
For you alone I wait.
All other desires I release.
All my other desires push me around;
you alone give me life.
A steady voice deep within me calls out for you;
I hear it calling.
There is no success or deserving;
no rank or degree of righteousness:
there is only reaching out for you,
and learning to trust.
You are the power of love.
I am your vessel.
