"Then I Shall Leap into Love . . ."

I cannot dance, Lord, 
unless you lead me.
If you want me to leap with abandon,
You must intone the song.
Then I shall leap into love,
From love into knowledge,
From knowledge into enjoyment,
And from enjoyment 
beyond all human sensations.
There I want to remain,
yet want also to circle higher still.

– Excerpted from "Visions of God"
