What force is this that heavens bow,
That breaks or strengthens the strongest vow,
And demons quiver and phantoms shiver,
At the sound of its sacred trumpets.
What force is this that darkness dissipates,
That all humans strive for and anticipate,
And the sky shakes and the earth quakes
Before its miraculous drums.
What force is this that freezes time,
That causes space and spirit to combine,
And thunder crashes and forests turn to ashes
At the pulsation of its guitar.
And so I ask what force is this,
That is so powerful and causes bliss,
As pure as a diamond shining dove,
I marvel at this force called love.
