Not one tear escapes my eyes,
But everything within me cries.
My spirit longs to harmonize,
To join the song they’re singing.
I fight against the old desire;
Doubt suffocates the rising fire—
Go back to sleep, oh harp and lyre!
To truth alone I’m clinging.
My spirit rises up again.
This is the truth—Love has to win!
Just open up and let Him in,
This God who has pursued us.
My mind escapes from love’s delusion—
This is the gospel of confusion.
The love of God is an illusion;
It is a kiss of Judas.
My heart revives—But this is my song!
Your logic is sound, but I think you’re still wrong.
When I hear him calling, I know I belong;
I resonate with the voice of my master.
But heart, don’t forget—this resonance kills.
Remember wine glasses and singers’ loud shrills.
You vibrate in synchrony; you tremble with chills,
Then you shatter in resonance disaster.
My heart is dejected—I can’t say much more.
I’ve lost every battle; I’m losing the war.
But if He died for me—if my burdens He bore,
Maybe I’m meant to be shattered.
Oh idiot heart, you’ve become far too weak.
You’re fooling yourself if it’s truth that you seek.
You’re ignoring the wisdom you know that I speak,
Like a woman, beaten and battered.
Remember, heart, your dignity.
Take up your arms and fight for me.
Reclaim your identity
With the common sense that frees us.
Quiet now, mind—I lay down my will.
The call has resounded; I cannot be still.
Disastrous resonance will break me until
All they see is Jesus.
