In return for Your unlimited,
immeasurable love,
alas, what have I given You?

With both hands, I have taken everything,
I did not learn to give, I only learned to take.

You filled my life with flowers,
fruits, beauty and taste.
You blessed me with intellect, radiance and sweetness.
You gave me more than I deserved.


Now, please grant me only this much:
the right and strength
to hold You in my heart.

O companion in pain
all the sweetness of my life,
I offer unto You in abundance.

_________________________

What have I offered to You
in exchange for Your unbounded and fathomless love?

I haven't learnt how to offer.
I have learnt only how to accept from You.

You have overfilled my heart with flowers and fruits,
forms and flows.


Intellectual brilliance, sweet charms;
You have offered more than I wanted.

Pray, only give me the right to say this much:
that I have always held You in my bossom.

O Lord, my Eternal Friend in adversity!
All the nectar of my mind, I pour out unto You.
