The truth of myself

The truth of myself

I looked into Your eyes and knew
I would follow an uncommon course --
the truth of myself belongs to You.

Your eyes gathering my soul into view,
my soul transformed perforce,
I looked into Your eyes and knew

the truing of a course -- evermore true;
my way surrendered without remorse --
the truth of myself belongs to You.

I drank 'til my bones became imbued
with wine only my Beloved pours --
I looked into Your eyes and knew,

though I fail Your love its promised due,
tramping a thousand foreign shores,
the truth of myself belongs to You.

And still this course my soul pursues --
the warm pink coat, the pure white horse.
I looked into Your eyes and knew --
the truth of myself belongs to You.
