One night upon a midnight sky,
The Lord of Love I saw
He touched my heart as there I lay
And changed what went before.
He understood my fevered thoughts
And stilled them with a smile
He placed new thoughts within my heart
And said ‘You are my child’.
‘You may not hear me every day
But I won’t fail to call
At times you’ll feel me very near
And others, not at all.
My love is like the air you breathe
It’s constant, all around,
But just like air it can’t be seen
And doesn’t make a sound.
But you will feel its radiant warmth
You’ll know it, deep inside,
When others, who’ve accepted me,
Into your life collide.
So treat each person that you meet
As friends to be revealed
For now you know me, you might find
My love in them concealed.’
And what delights me most of all
Is seeing hearts of love
Embracing other caring hearts
And praising God above.’
