Love Knocks and Waits for Us to Hear
Love knocks and waits for us to hear,
to open and invite:
Love longs to quiet every fear,
and seeks to set things right.
Love offers life, in spite of foes
who threaten and condemn;
embracing enemies, Love goes
the second mile with them.
Love comes to heal the broken heart,
to ease the troubled mind;
without a word Love bids us start
to ask and seek and find.
Love knocks and enters at the sound
of welcome from within;
Love sings and dances all around,
and feels new life begin.
