Sh’ma – A Call to Love

The owl calls out in darkness
Sh'ma, hear me. I call out to you.
Hear me in holiness.
Listen in holiness.
Speak in holiness.

The deer moves softly in darkness.
She knows the ground she walks is holy.
See my hoofprints, signs I leave for you.
I watch over you while you are sleeping,
Guard your soul throughout the night.

Do not fear the darkness,
Its quiet whispers of that we cannot see,
The gentle voices we do not understand.
Surrender to the mystery of holiness,
Surrender to the mystery of love.

God calls out in darkness
Sh'ma, hear me. I long for you.
Speak in love,
Walk in love,
Be in love.
Be with Me.
