I come to Thee with the song of my smiles.
Whatever treasures have lain in the secrecy of my soul, I
bring eagerly to Thee.
I bring Thee all the honey from the hive of my heart. All
that was ever mine is now Thine alone.
The sunlight of this world, shining upon my eager hopes
and brief, fickle fulfillments, burned me repeatedly with
Now I will quench my thirst forever in Thy radiant waters!
The taper of my aspiration toward happiness will burst
aflame with Thy coming into a conflagration of bliss.
In Thy vast, enchanting sea of light I will swim joyfully
Teach me to drown in Thee and live, rather than live in a
mirage-paradise of earthliness and die.
