I listen to your melodies twisting and rippling along this mountain stream.
May I join you your Majesty?
May I play my harp - and sing my tune - to the throb of your heart?
May I sing of the favoured care – receive from you - my Loved One?
Who saved me from the lion's jaws.
Who rescued me from the bear's claws.
It pleases me - to melody with you - my Loved One!
A giant's might lost to the fight – against you my Loved One!
The brook's smooth stones honed through the ages,
Were marked by you – allotted in your mind for my hands.
You were my strength and force on that day of my smallness;
You were the victory my people needed;
Yours is the praise for that day - the only worthy praise!
I will sing a love song of your deliverance forever.
You saved me from the deception of both friends and foes -
Their swords and spears were lashing tongues that slashed my soul -
But you were my Victor that shielded my open heart.
You lifted me up higher than the highest;
You were my stay when I strayed from you;
You saved me from the lion's mouth and the den of thieves.
I will love you forever – my Loved One!
I now will play my harp - with oaks' gnarled hands - a faltering tune,
To you whose grace I trace to steps and thoughts unknown;
I swallow my smallness that kept me lashed to you,
And thank you for imprisoning me within your love,
And bringing me to this age-long place of security.
I can now rest in peace with you my Loved One,
And cease my strivings from these times.
