Here In My Hand

Here in my hand
I hold Your Heart,
Given to me at great sacrifice.
Here in my hand lies the King of Kings,
Overwhelmingly Majestic in stunning humility.

Tender Savior,
Gift from the Heart of God,
You beg to be consumed,
To be so taken in
That You become one with us
In every cell, in every thought,
In the beating of our hearts
And each breath we take.

Here You must be, in everything,
Just as You are.

But we seldom see, hear,
Touch, love totally, as You long for.
Our thoughts turn so easily earthward
While You try so hard to lift us up
To You, O Master, Creator,
Lover of our souls, as You are
One with our bodies,
Part of every cell,
Food for the journey,
The journey to Your Heart,
That room prepared for us.

Love so dense it takes on form,
A form such that would break
So easily in our hands,
So You come, O Loved One,
In infinite humility and vulnerability,
Begging to be consumed
In a heart on fire with love,
Enraptured with Your touch,
With the power of Your grace,
With the tenderness and
Passionate trembling
Of Your precious Heart;
So I consume You
And make You my own,
My heart falling into Yours,
Where it longs to be,
Where You long to hold it
Captive to Your holy grace
And Your thunderously powerful,
Infinitely sweet Love.

Come, my Love, and consume me
As I consume You
And our hearts tremble into union
In the passionate Fire
Of Your most Sacred Love.
