Only You

woman with two hands on her heart, eyes closed

Holy One,

God Of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
All of these names are Your names,
All of them holy and blessed.
Sometimes I see you as my King.
Sometimes I see you as my Friend.
Sometimes I see You 
in ways words can not describe.
But always I see You as Adonai.
The One true God.
There is none but You.
Only You are worthy of my trust.
Only You lift up my head.
Only You are my comfort when sorrow engulfs me.
Only You.
You are the first, the last, the only.
From before Your Word was spoken 
and the universe appeared,
You alone were there.
You alone hear my prayers.
You alone hear the prayers
of the generations still to come.
