O blessed poverty

O blessed poverty,
     who bestows eternal riches on those who love and embrace her!
O holy poverty,
     to those who possess and desire you
     God promises the kingdom of heaven
     and offers, indeed, eternal glory and blessed life!
O God-centered poverty,
     whom the Lord Jesus Christ
     Who ruled and now rules heaven and earth,
     Who spoke and things were made,
     condescended to embrace before all else!
