You carry your love song to me
Through the verses of the day’s bird song
As I learn to hear your sweet voice
I’m carried by you all day long
If flitting on some finespun fronds
Or balancing on highest limb
Your voice arrives in known refrain
Ethereal and graceful hymn
Ah, robin, wren or nightingale
At sunrise or sundown you greet
This concert strums my strings of heart
And calms me with enchanting tweets
Your harmony restores my soul
The gentle notes speak of your grace
This feathered melody lays soft
The tender fleece of your embrace.
My heart is full, my peace complete
In this life only partly known
But summon me and I will hear
The love song from your voice intoned
For the Lord your God is living among you.
He is a mighty savior.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.
