Oh my Lord,
keep this heart on Deen;
it struggles to remain constant, forever seeking
that soul with whom it's been.
So, dear Lord,
protect this fluttering heart;
it ceaselessly wavers, in hope as it searches
for that missing, complementary part.
And, my Lord,
answer this heart's cries;
help it see clearly beyond the glitter
that often dazzles its eyes.
And, dear Lord,
strengthen this heart in me;
give it patience while it must wait
for the one who holds its key.
Finally, my Lord,
make this heart clear,
about ALL that will bring it near
and will save it from weary tears.
