The Heart of Eternal Love
Heart of Love,
Source of all kindness,
Teacher of the ways of goodness,
You are hidden in the pockets of daily life,
Waiting to be discovered.
Heart of Gladness,
Joy that sings in our souls,
The Dancer and the Dance,
You are Music radiating in our
Cherished caches of consolation.
Heart of Compassion,
The Healing One weeping
For a world burdened and bent,
You are the heart we bring
To the wounded, worn and weary.
Heart of Comfort,
Sheltering Wings of Love,
Refuge for sad and lonely ones,
You embrace all who bear loss,
Gathering their tears with care.
Heart of all Hearts,
The First and Best of all Companions,
You are the Gift secreted in our depths,
Connecting us with others.
Heart of Understanding,
One who gazes upon the imperfect,
The incomplete, the flawed, the weak,
You never stop extending mercy.
Heart of Freedom,
The Uncontained Spirit bearing truth,
Great Liberator, forever calling to us,
You urge us toward unrestrained trust.
Heart of Genenerosity,
Abundance of insight and hope,
Daily you offer us gifts of growth,
Leading to continual transformation.
Heart of Deepest Peace,
Center of Tranquility,
Resting Place at the core of our being,
You are waiting always for our return
To this sacred home.
Out of the Ordinary
