Love, Mystics

Love Song – Terisa Of Avila

Majestic Sovereign, Timeless Wisdom,
Your kindness melts my hard, cold soul.

Beautiful Lover, Selfless giver,
Your beauty fills my dull, sad eyes.

I am yours, you made me.
I am yours, you called me.
I am yours, you saved me.
I am yours, you loved me.
Let me never leave your presence.

Give me death, give me life.
Give me sickness, give me health.
Give me honour, give me shame.
Give me weakness, give me strength.
I will have whatever you give.


– Terisa Of Avila (1515-1582AD)
