We Wish You Love

We wish you love, like soft and kindly blessings

We savor from a fire’s gentle glow;

Reminding us that life is good and friendly,

That warmth and tenderness can always flow.


We wish you love, like all consuming fury,

When fire rages out of all control;

Reminding us of passionate excitement

When we are joined in body, mind and soul.


We wish you love, like purifying fire,

As it refines with ‘purging’ in its heat;

Reminding us that all which is offensive

Does not belong when loving is complete.


We wish you love, like fire burning brightly,

Giving the light on which we can depend;

Reminding us that loving is a beacon,

Guiding and leading to a brighter end.


In all our loving God is surely active;

When we receive it God is also there.

Lives are enriched when love burns unrestricted;

We wish you love, the priceless gift to share.
