Behold the Beloved

The trees sing for you

The clouds part for you

The seas at peace for you

To see your face

is like beholding a million lights

When I come to you

When I arise to you

Please be there for me

And on angels' wings carry me

Behold the Beloved

The trees sing for you

The clouds part for you

The seas at peace for you

To see your face

is like beholding a million lights

I leave behind many

I leave behind all

To be with you all the days of my life

and without regret

Behold the Beloved

The trees sing for you

The clouds part for you

The seas at peace for you

To see your face

is like beholding a million lights

You see you are to me

the world and all

The heavens does shrink in your beauty

The universe is small to you

And every time you step in an quarrel

it ends immediately

Behold the Beloved

The trees sing for you

The clouds part for you

The seas at peace for you

To see your face

is like beholding a million lights

The little birds know your name

The little beasts speak your praise

All creation folds to you

Cause something about you that

so real, so beyond fantasy

imaginations can never fit you

Behold the Beloved, I surely will see

The trees sing for you, I will too

The clouds part for you, I will bow too

The seas at peace for you, we all will be

To see your face, longing for you

is like beholding a million lights
