Noble Lover, my soul you do undress
And clothe me in your masculine shroud
Of dignity. Carressed.
Beautiful being, of ever Godly strength
My penance you so greatly forge
Ennobling in recompense.
When gentle man, my sorrows you dare lift
Tender is the shepherd’s hold
Life giving, is His kiss.
Beloved shepherd, my yearning soul you do re-dress
Shroud me in thou secret ways
Make me your shepherdess.
Darling spouse, my entirety you bless
Lead me unto your sacred fold
My honeymoon and rest.
My radiant Lord, with edifying breath
You burnish me with Golden hues
The death of death.
