When love beckons to you,

follow him,

Though his ways are hard and steep.

Though he hides a sword among them.

Though his voice may shatter your dreams

D D F F C C F F
Love will crown and crucify you.
D D F F Am Am F F
Love for your growth so he is for your pruning.
D D F F C C F F
Love will caresses your tenderest branches
Am Am F F Am Am F F
And shake every clinging root.


Am Am F F Am Am F F C C F F C C F F
Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.
Am Am F F Am Am F F
He threshes and sifts you he grinds until he kneads you

C C F F C C F F

Dm Dm F F Dm Dm F F C C F F C C F F
And then he assigns you to his sacred fire,
Dm Dm F F Dm Dm F F C C F F C C F F
That you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast.


D D F F C C F F
All these things shall love do unto you
D D F F Am Am F F
That you may know the secrets of your heart,
D D F F C C F F
And in that knowledge become a fragment
Am Am F F Am Am F F
A A fragment of Life's heart.


Am Am F F Am Am
Now if in your fear you seek only love's
F F Am Am F F Am Am F F
peace and love's pleasure,
Am Am F F Am Am
Better cover your nakedness and pass out of
F F Am Am F F Am Am F F
love's threshing-floor,
Dm Dm F F
Into a seasonless world where you shall
Dm Dm F F Am Am F F Am Am F F
laugh, but not all your laughter,
Dm Dm F F Dm Dm F F Am Am F F Am Am F F
And weep, and weep but not all of your tears.


D D F F C C F F
Love gives naught but itself
D D F F Am Am F F
and takes naught but from itself.
D D F F C C F F
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
Am Am F F Am Am F F
For love is enough.

Am Am F F C C F F
You should say, "I am in the heart of God."
Am Am F F C C F F
You cannot direct the course of love,
Am Am F F C C F F C C F F C C F F
For love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.


D D F F C C F F
To wake at dawn with a winged heart
D D F F Am Am F F
To come home in the evening with gratitude;
D D F F C C F F
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart
Am Am F F Am Am
And a song of praise on your lips.
