Poet: Mechthild of Magdeburg

Of the voices of the Godhead

Poet: Mechthild of Magdeburg

O soaring eagle! darling lamb!
O glowing spark! Set me on fire!
How long must I endure this thirst?
One hour is already too long,
A day is as a thousand years
When Thou art absent!

Set Me on Fire

Poet: Mechthild of Magdeburg

O soaring eagle! darling lamb!
O glowing spark! Set me on fire!
How long must I endure this thirst?
One hour is already too long,
A day is as a thousand years
When Thou art absent!
