170. Teach Me to Drown in Thy Light and Live

I come to Thee with the song of my smiles. Whatever treasures lie in the secret safe of my soul, I have brought eagerly to Thee. I have brought all the honey from the hive of my heart. Whatsoever is mine, that also is Thine

The sun of my fickle hopes and happiness has burned me with dissatisfaction; and now my desires will forever quench their thirst, drinking of Thee.

The taper of my happiness will merge with Thy blaze of bliss. The aroma of Thy scented flame and its murmuring joyous waves come floating to me. In Thine enchanting light I will swim forever. Teach me to drown in Thy divine light and live, rather than live in a mirage-paradise of earthliness and die.
