Because I needBecause I need God's Love,
God's Compassion saves me.
Because I need God's Compassion,
God's Forgiveness illumines me.
Because I need God's Forgiveness,
God's Satisfaction inspires me.
Because I need God's Satisfaction,
God's Oneness liberates me.
Because I need God's Oneness,
God gives me His Eternity's Boat,
His Infinity's Sea
His Immortality's Shore.
Because I need God's Boat, God's Sea
And God's Shore,
God gives me two things that He loves most
In His entire Creation:
A sleepless cry and a deathless smile.
