Give Me One More Hour  

Give me one more hour
to glance into the face of the One
my heart has claimed as its Master.


Give me one more hour
to touch the smooth cheek
the lips so soft and full
to feel the power of their caress.


Give me one more hour
to feel the arms holding me tight
to caress the warm skin
to run fingers through His hair.


Give me one more hour
to be lost in those eyes
to be encompassed by His power
to lose all sense of the rest of the world.


Give me one more hour
to be whole and complete
to taste the future
to bask in His serenity.


Give me one more hour
to lose all personal resolve
to gain all freedom
to feel my heart filled with His presence.


Give me one more hour
though it's not enough time
when what I really want is eternity
to be spent at His feet.
