I Disbelieved in Myself to Follow You and Live with You
To Follow You!
I disbelieved in myself to follow you, I carried the cross that hurt you,
I rejoiced in bearing the torment on a cross, for without a cross, I will suffer with you.
And the cross is sweet as a sweet torment
And you are beloved! Make my heart happy
I cry, Lord, Thy path is my path:
So I follow you and live with you.
Enlighten me, I have sinned, so come to me forgiving and have pity on me:
I strayed for a long time. I came back sick and stood humiliated, my thighs in my hands
So my surgery is healed by touching your hands
And my wings flicker tenderly to you, they hover over you
So it is good bliss that I follow you… and live with you!
Jesus! You have to melt my tears and wash my tears, my Jesus wounds
My heart beats with your love, child, and fondly!
Have no mercy on the “prisoner of the ribs”
Shall I not wipe the tears of kneeling?
I kneel down to get you back
If you are absent from me, and I walk with you:
I am happy to follow you.
My love, with your love, bless my consciousness, grow to you by dancing candles!
On the night of prayer, my soul lit up with joy, “Christ of the multitudes.”
Our God is great and our God is merciful
A fountain of love washes my heart
And stay close to Jesus the King!
And turn to me, that I may follow you.
