I have never known such rest and peace
As shedding tears and here I weep.
Flay my heart, lay bare my guilt
Let all my pride and hot fear wilt.
Destroy the “me” that kicked the goads,
Stubbornly stumbled down lonely roads.
How I loved my companions: myself, my beauty, the wisdom of my mind,
But anguish overtook me, a loneliness I thought would kill
When I ran hard from you to chase my will.
But I fell.
Landed alone in a wasted hell.
If not for you, if you had not been on my side…
Oh Savior of those who take refuge in you.
In this pleasant place I will rest in you .
