I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU

I sit on the edge of the boat
Afraid of neither the waves nor the fish
Longing for neither sea nor land
But for You.

And You say, “Come to Me.”
Whole-hearted but halfway believing,
Distracted but not dismayed,
I move to You.

I will fall a thousand times
I will sink
I will fail
But I must have You.

I sit on the edge of the boat
Afraid of neither the waves nor the fish
Longing for neither sea nor land
But for food.

And You say, “Cast your nets.”
Familiar with empty-handed evenings
And efforts that never succeed,
I trust You.

I will doubt a thousand times
I will pause
I will fear
But I must obey You.

You say, “Come to Me.”
You say, “Cast your nets.”
And all I can say is I love You, I love You, I love You.
