What do you call God? After years pretending not to notice the Presence that is everywhere, the yearning for that most profound relationship outweighed my objections. A term of endearment emerged: “Dearest One!” – for God, Mystery, Presence, partner, family, companions in meditation.
And yet no term is big enough for the love we embody: Dearest One, Deepest One, Hidden One, everywhere! This song is a prayer and love song to [God].
Sing it alone or to your Beloved; sing it with a spiritual practice group or congregation. Sing it with piano or guitar, or as a choral piece with harmony.
