A happy, thousandfold happy soul,
Who loves God for God’s sake,
Who loves Him more than his own life.
To love Him above life,
is to love Him regardless of what the senses feel, selflessly,
is to love the annihilating ways by which He leads,
is to love Him for Him alone,
is to lose oneself completely in His liking.
