Infinite Love - Søren Kierkegaard

Thou loving Father, 
everything goes wrong for me
and yet Thou art love. 
I have even failed in holding fast to this—
that Thou art love, 
and yet Thou art love.

Wherever I turn, 
the only thing that I cannot do without
is that Thou art love, 
and that is why, 
even when I have not held fast 
to the faith that Thou art love,
I believe that 
Thou dost permit through love 
that it should he so, 
O Infinite Love.
