You surprise me, Lord,
when you touch me unexpectedly
with the hand of my beloved.

You comfort me, my Shepherd,
when you speak reassuringly
through the voice of my true spouse.

You strengthen me, my Friend,
when you look upon me knowingly
through the eyes of my companion.

You inspire me, O Holy One,
when you breathe your life so gently
through the breath of my dear love.

You guide my steps, O Dancer,
as you urge me on so gracefully
through the leading of my partner.

May I find you each day anew
in the presence of my spouse.
