Lord the lover of my soul, pierce my heart with thy wondrous love. Let thy love burst open my heart and drain all that is bitter within. Let thy love, the pure honey from the rock never cease to nourish it. Oh sweet Divine love, how you love me. My garden is in full bloom. Come sweet fragrance,  let thy love penetrate me, impregnate me.  Love sweet Divine come. Come and consume me like a wild fire. Let thy joy within me grow.

Oh, magnificent lion of Judah, let thy strong paws rest on my shoulders. Let all my fear subside. Let thy breeze gently blow into my innermost being, freeing me from the complexities I have created for myself.

Oh how much I'm loved by you my God, my father. In your bosom I lie. As my eyes grow heavy and droop, I know I'm loved. I hear you whisper in my ears "You are my beloved".
