To Have Nothing But God

God be with you and give you
True knowledge of the methods of love;
May he enable you to understand
What the Bride says in the Song of Songs:
I to my beloved, and my beloved to me!
If anyone allowed love to conquer him,
He would then conquer love completely.
I hope this will be your experience

Hadewijch of Antwerp, Letter 19
