Let the Love of the Lord

Descend as the Sun and his rays

They touch the Sunflowers whose petals

Have been singed by the heat of the days

Just as I ascend up to him

Like the evaporated waters of the Blue Nile

Let the Love of the Lord

Cure those who are febrile 

Descending like a Jaguar from its tree 

I come as a child with a cut on my knee

Like an Abyssinian Lion bowing at the king’s feet

Here I am strong, full of courage, living meek 

Let the Love of the Lord 

Descend and fill my heart

Letting peace in from the very start

Just like honey to its comb 

Here again, facing Jericho but not alone

Yes, these trumpets have called me back home

Just as I ascend up to him

Detaching my flesh and letting the Lord in 

Seeing there’s no point in letting the war in

I surrender to the inevitable 

Disregarding the fable and lies of the roaring

Seeking the will of the father whose love I’ve been storing 

See now 

Just as a dove escaping the darkness of death

Let peace be my religion on this spiritual quest 

Let the Love of the Lord 

Reign from the lights of the  East 

To the shadows of the West

For I say, the Love of the Lord is the Best
