How can I stop, O Lord?
Forgive me, O Lord, for wanting to hear you.
Forgive me, O Lord, for desiring to see you.
Forgive me, O Lord, for yearning to feel you.
Though I know 'I am not worthy to untie your sandal' (cf. John 1:27), how can I stop?
My ears give heed to Your whisper.
My eyes squint for Your glimmer.
My heart casts about for Your warmth.
