Only your presence
The well known reading from Romans 8 today, that nothing can separate us from the love of God, is echoed in the writings of St Francis about discipleship:
"Therefore, let nothing hinder us, nothing separate us, nothing come between us. Wherever we are, in every place, at every hour, at every time of the day, every day and continually, let all of us truly and humbly believe, hold in our heart and love, honor, adore, serve, praise and bless, glorify and exalt, magnify and give thanks to the Most High and Supreme Eternal God ."
This song seems to echo some of those ideas. It is rather beautiful and just right for the peace and calm of a lovely Sunday evening.
