O Divine Jealousy, You have wounded my heart!...



I am united to Jesus
By the bonds of Love,
And his infinite Grandeur
Makes his dwelling within me.

Oh! what inexpressible intoxication
I feel palpitating within me:
The burning, tender heart
Of my Spouse, of my King.

I suffer this exile without difficulty,
Living with my Spouse...
The chain joining me to the Jealous God
Is so sweet!...

O Divine Jealousy,
You have wounded my heart!...
You will be my rest and my happiness
All my life.

Deign to consume my whole being.
Jesus alone must live within me.
From now on I only want to be
The veil of my King!...
