Behold, my brother angel,
Jesus rising into Heaven.
I myself came to earth
To adore Him at the altar. 
 Hidden in the Eucharist,
I see the God Almighty.
I see the Author of life,
Much smaller than a child!...


Ah! from now on I want to take
My place in the sanctuary
To offer to God my prayers
And the hymn of my love.


I want to sing with my lyre
The charms of the hidden God.
I want in holy delirium
To be inebriated by His beauty.
Ah! that I might be nourished at the tabernacle
By the God of love 
And by a very sweet miracle
Be one with Him each day.


At least I want to loan my ardor
To every holy soul 
That they might fearlessly
Approach the Savior!...
