  • What sweeter than this in the world!
    Friend met friend and the lover joined his Beloved.
    That was all sorrow, this is all joy
    Those were all words, this is all reality.
  • Love came and flew as blood in my veins
    Emptied me of myself and filled me with beloved.
    Each part of my being she conquered
    Now a mere name is left to me and the rest is she.
