Sing For Very Love
Thou, Jubilus, the heart dost move;
And makest us sing for very love.
The Jubilus in fire awakes,
And straight the man must sing and pray;
His tongue in childish stammering shakes,
Nor knows he what his lips may say;
He cannot quench nor hide away
That Sweetness pure and infinite.
