Lord, if You are not present.

Lord, if You are not present
I don’t want to go forward.
I don’t need to rush to the finish
for You are the beginning and the end.
You are the Prize.
If You are not present
not even the greatest riches will satisfy.
You are our treasure.
If You are not present
I cannot love.
I will be just a noise.
And even when You are here
may I never wander away.
May I never grow weary.
Better to be still in this silence with You
than with those of loud religion.
So thank You for being way beyond who I am
so that I can trust in everything You are.

a.
