…I clothe. 2 And his 1 There is some confusion in the MS between the readings ‘his’ and ‘my’. limbs are with him, And I hang on them, and he loves me; 3 For I should not have known how to love the Lord, If he had not loved me. 4 Who can understand love, But he who is loved? 5 I love the Beloved One, and my soul loves him; And where his rest is, there too am I. 6 And I shall not be a stranger, Because there is no grudging 2 Or ‘envy’. with the Most High and merciful Lord. 7 I was united to him, because the lover has found the Beloved One, Because I love that Son, I shall become a son; 3 Text ‘Because I shall love that Son, in order that I may become a son’. 8 For he who is joined to him that does not die, He too will become immortal, 9 And he who takes pleasure in life 4 Differently pointed, the consonants could mean ‘the living one’. Will become a living one. 10 This is the guileless Spirit of the Lord, That teaches men to know his ways. 11 Be wise, and understand, and be attentive. Hallelujah.
