________________________________________________

God is so dear unto Himself,
Folded in self so utterly,
That He can never cherish love
For anything that is not He.


***

Eternal Spirit, God becomes
All that He wills to be - but still
Abideth ever as He is,
Without a form, an aim, a will.

***

Here in the midst of Time God doth become what He,
The Unbecome, was not in all Eternity.

***

Man, thou art like a piece of coal;
And if thou liest not in Him,
Who is thy Fire and thy Light;
Then art thou black and cold and dim.

(Angelus Silesius)
