  Love Is Strong As Death  

 

"I have not sought Thee, I have not found Thee,
     I have not thirsted for Thee:
And now cold billows of death surround me,
Buffeting billows of death astound me,--
     Wilt Thou look upon, wilt Thou see
     Thy perishing me?"

"Yea, I have sought thee, yea, I have found thee,
     Yea, I have thirsted for thee,
Yea, long ago with love's bands I bound thee:
Now the Everlasting Arms surround thee,--
     Through death's darkness I look and see
     And clasp thee to Me."

       - Christina G. Rossetti
