"Cor Meum Est Templum Sacrum"
[My Heart Is a Holy Place]
by Patricia Van Ness

My heart is a holy place
Wiser and holier than I know it to be
Wiser than my lips can speak
A spring of mystery and grace.

You have created my heart
And have filled it with things of wonder.
You have sculpted it, shaped it with your hands
Touched it with Your breath.
In its own season it reveals itself to me.
It shows me rivers of gold
Flowing in elegance
And hidden paths of infinite beauty.

You touch me with Your stillness as
   I await its time.
You have made it a dwelling place
   of richness and intricacies
Of wisdom beyond my understanding
Of grace and mysteries, from your hands.
