Come down among us, be one of us lovers,
So that we may open up to you
the gate to the garden of love.
Come reside in our own house like a shadow,
for we are neighbors to the Sun
Although like the soul we are invisible in the world;
although like the love of lovers we are without a sign,
yet every sign of ours
can be traced back to You,
for just the Soul we are both hidden and manifest.
Whatever you think us to be,
look further up; we are above that.
You are water, but in a whirlpool and engulfed;
come down among us, since we are outpouring torrents.
Inasmuch as we have staked our all in pure poverty,
we know nothing except singing
these songs of unknowingness.
