The Lover of My Soul by Teresa S. Mathews




The Lover of My Soul

Like rain falling on dry ground, your love soothes my soul.     
It makes me feel alive and new, like I'll never grow old.

Every day it's like a blanket, covering me with bliss.         
Like the taste of honey, sweeter than a kiss.

Beautiful words of love flowing from your heart to mine, 
They are sweeter than ripe berries hanging on the vine.

Your beauty overwhelms me as I look upon your face;           
I want to bask in its glory, remembering its grace.

In your presence I want to stay and worship at your feet,  
Lord I give myself completely, totally to Thee.

You're the light of my life, the lover of my soul; 
I will forever love you and your praises extol.

  1. Teresa, thank you so much for this lovely poem.
    His love truly does soothe my soul, and waters my spirit like the rain falling on the dry parched, dry ground, saturating and refreshing my spirit!

    1. NOELA there is nothing like the Lord's presence to soothe us and let us know He loves us. :)

  2. I was feeling poorly in body and down in spirit last night before I went to bed. These were the last words I saw or heard before I went to sleep. Peace came over me and I slept like a babe. He truly is the lover of our soul and in complete control of all of our trials and situations in life. Thanks, my sweet friend!

    I am sure that Carrie knows that everything is going well in her absence. I am praying that she is having a wonderful time and for safe travels when she journeys home.
