1 We Can Never Hide ...

We can never hide
From God
And from His choice Hour.

2 The Weeping ...

The weeping
God the man
I love.

3 The Smiling ...

The smiling
Man the God
I need.

4 Only True God-Lovers ...

Only true God-lovers
Have the key
To open
Heaven’s Heart-Door.

5 God Asks Me ...

God asks me
Never to miss
Even a single chance
To please Him
In His own Way.

6 The Love Divine ...

The love divine
Is at once God-remembrance
And self-forgetfulness.

7 My Unconditional Surrender ...

My unconditional surrender
To God’s Will
Has to be made here and now,
And not in the far distant future.

8 In The Inner World ...

In the inner world,
Silence is made of power.

9 In The Outer World ...

In the outer world,
Silence is made of joy.

10 My Aspiration ...

My aspiration
Has another name:
My God-intoxication.

11 Each Time I Cry For God ...

Each time I cry for God,
He blesses me
With a new horizon.

12 A Sleepless Oneness-Heart ...

A sleepless oneness-heart
Is the only thing
That the world badly needs.
