I sat one fine afternoon in prayer
My heart lost in intimate reflection
And what happened then I feel I must share
To help explain my present affection:
Of holy presence I became aware
And its weight was almost too much to bear
As if my body and soul were to tear
And trembling in terror I sat there
While inside myself I was forced to stare
To where my heart seemed laid open and bare.
What is more important than to prepare
For when face-to-face with our LORD we stare?
Death whether near or far is there.
So I learnt what was important to me
And discovered it was my love for thee.
