 But if the great ones disdain Your empire
   King of Heaven, Mysterious Star
Long has more than one heart desired You
For You are the hope of ail the unhappy
Divine Star, O deep Wisdom
You spread Your ineffable gifts
On the little people, the poor of this world
.And You inscribe their names in Heaven
 
If You grant a share of wisdom
To the ignorant, to the littlest of hearts
It is because every soul is made in Your image
And You have come to save sinners
A day will come when, on the same meadow
The gentle lamb will graze beside the lion
And the desert, Your only fatherland
.More than once will hear Your name
 
O hidden God! the virginal souls
All aflame with the fire of love
Will dart forth in Your royal Footprints
And the deserts will be populated one day
These burning hearts, these seraphic souls
Will please all the angels of Heaven
But the humble sound of their divine canticles
.Will make the deep abyss tremble
 
In his fury, in his base jealousy
Satan will want to depopulate the deserts
He does not know the infinite power
Of the weak Child whom the universe ignores
He does not know that the fervent virgin
Finds solitude in her heart
He does not know how powerful is the soul
.Who is united with her Divine Savior
 
Perhaps one day your dear spouses
Will share Your exile, O my God
But the sinners who will have cast them
.From their love will not extinguish the fire

The sacrilegious hatred of the impure world
Can never soil the snow-white garments,
Can never tarnish the celestial whiteness
Of the virgins of the Lord.
 
O ungrateful world! Already your reign expires.
Don't you see that this little Child
Holds in His Hand the palm of martyrdom.
Already gathers the radiant lilies.
In order to give them to His faithful virgins
In whom shines the light of love?
Don't you see the eternal doors
Which must open one day for the saints?...
 
Oh! What a moment, what pure happiness,
When the elect will appear in glory.
They will receive in exchange for their love
An eternity to love in Heaven....
After this exile, there will be no more suffering,
Only the repose of their Heavenly dwelling.
After this exile, we will have no need of Faith and Hope,
We will have nothing but joy, and the ecstasy of Love!....
