Lover of My Soul ... a poem to the Lord

My Jesus, Lover of My Soul,
How often you've wept for me,
Waiting there patiently,
I shall never know.

How often have I broken
Your true and precious heart-
By looking towards others
To fill that empty part?

Though often I have grieved you,
Yet you'd never leave;
But you waited for me,pleading...
"Don't you want me?
Don't you want me?"

Now and then you'd let me
See your loving face,
Always there 'till I was ready
To recieve your pure embrace.

My Jesus, Lover of my soul...
All the while 'twas you I was searching for.
You are my one true Love,
The Lover of my Soul.

And if someday you should choose
To comfort me in human arms,
I will surely know it is really you,
Loving me in borrowed form.

Lacy Scallopped Prayer Shawl

Just editing to say it's finished! It has 25 sections of 12 rows. Great for keeping shoulders warm while watching T.V. This was a real challenge to keep on count with... I was so glad to finish it!  Not trying to scare anyone, I guess that's just the way knitting is!
Hit! This is my current project. I am knitting a prayer shawl. It is about 2/3 finished.I posted a link on Craftster, so here's the link! : Complete instructions and photos are there.
