With Sighs Too Deep For Words

by Russell Willis

Already given is this love
This love that transcends all things
Love that knows the depths and heights
That knows of love and loss
That knows of grace and pain
Undeterred, unrelenting in its light
Even in the darkest and most tragic moments
With sighs too deep for words

Already given is this love
And yet given again and again and again
Never separated are we from this love
