Paul Mealor: Love’s as warm as tears
Westminster Williamson Voices; James Jordan, Conductor; Hunter Thomas, Tenor Soloist

Love’s as warm as tears,
Love is tears:
Pressure within the brain,
Tension at the throat,
Deluge, weeks of rain,
Haystacks afloat,
Featureless seas between hedges,
Where once was green,

Love’s as fierce as fire,
Love is fire:
All sorts infernal hear, and pride,
Lyric desire, when denied,
And that empty flame,
Whence all loves came.

Love’s as fresh as spring, Love is spring.
Love’s as hard as nails, Love is nails.

Blunt, thick, hammered through the medial nerves of One
Who, having made us knew The thing
He had done,
Seeing (with all that is)
Our Cross,
And His.

– C.S. Lewis
