But I Feel Slight

I feel but the slightest / bit alone, Lord, will you come to one / who longs beyond longing for the new name / and the white stone? But longing / cannot earn shorter coming, does not overwhelm / your understanding: You knew me / before any other could know / I was coming, before / coming had meaning and meaning had come. / Even then you loved. Before I was / to love.
