POETRY: Invitation To The God by Richard Rolle

Invitation To The God by Richard Rolle

Sear my inmost being
with Your fire, and my heart
will burn on Your altar forever.

Come, I beg You, O sweet
and true glory! Come, O most
desired sweetness! Come,

my Beloved, Who are my whole
consolation, to my soul—now languishing
for Your sake and inclined to You—

and slip into it with most
sweetly flowing love. Set ablaze
with Your heat every penetrable

place of my heart and, by filling
its inmost places with Your light,
feed the whole with the honey-flowing

joy of Your love, in order
to snatch up in new, noetic
union this mind and body.
