And your God in the Homeland
Will show His gratitude.

 38 MARTHA 

What, then, oh my God, is the great reward,
That I can hope for after all my works?
I don't deserve anything, but I still think
That You will fill me with Your new blessings.
 
39 JESUS
 
In Heaven, My glory will be yours
And all My possessions will be yours.
Honor comparable to no other
You will call Me your spouse !....
 
40 MARTHA
 
Since after this life You will be my portion
The crown of honor of my virginity
Ah! I would like to fly to the Celestial shore
 Already to contemplate You in Your majesty.
 
41 JESUS
 
Soon on the eternal shore
Singing the new canticle
You will see My immortal glory
And you will follow the Lamb everywhere!...
