You were WITHIN, and I without, and there I sought You. You were with me when I was not with You. You called, and cried out, and burst my deafness. You gleamed and glowed, dispelling my blindness. You touched me, and I burned for Your peace. For you have made us for Yourself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in You.
