In the Secret Place

In the secret place
Silence given song
Gentle voice of growing
Rushing river strong
Still; my heart yet quickens
Silence, oh my soul
Within me a wave
Gentle as it bold
Sing to me a song
Open up my ear
Whisper silent love songs
Draw me ever near
No presence as you give
-Even in the sun-
Who close his eyes by night
When you are just begun
Find me in the hollow
In the womb as old
Birth my heart anew
Speak and I am told
Find me as my lover
Embrace me as the bride
It is I you long for
Hold me at your side
Take me in your garden
Here I find your face
Grace me as a lover
In the secret place
