Steps

Step after step,

 breath after breath,

my heart knows no stopping!

I can see You sitting on the bank of the River,

I run towards You,

yet, I fall down!

Many steps I take,

but somehow all in vain!

I fall, yet again!

Step after step,

 breath after breath,

my heart knows no stopping!

You smile at me,

and happily play Your flute,

I step over

the rocks of fear, of anger, of envy,

I step over

the muddy puddles of greed, of illusion.

But somehow, I cannot step over this swamp of lust!

Step after step,

 breath after breath,

my heart knows no stopping!

Only Your steps of mercy

would get me wings!

With the wings of mercy,

I can fly,

I can run,

I can jump!

With the wings of mercy,

I can pray,

I can dance,

I can Love!

Hey dear friend! Make Your steps of Mercy,

for my heart knows no stopping,

for my heart yearns for Your embrace,

for my heart is tired of falling!
