Faithful -- to Our Past Something Very Precious
Deep in My Blood

How forcefully you stir within my blood!
And now I know that you will ever be
Deep in my blood—that precious balm of life
Which gives me strength to love and worship you,
And flows to heart, to hands, to limbs, to lips,
To every dear and secret place of passion.
My God, it's sweet to be in love with you
And feel that you are rampant in my veins.
And I am glad that you are thus a part
Of me, behind and in and running through
My every thought and act, an indwelling,
Electrifying force that penetrates
The core and inmost essence of my being,
An utter, final taking hold of me.
