With songs of joy my heart does sing
Of mortal beauty to behold
As dreams divine a wondrous spring
Where new creations can unfold
For this God planned a place for me
In halls where Philip’s sons do strive
To turn the souls of men made free
Tow’rd Triune Truth and Love alive.
Into my hands God put this world
With pow’r and grace and love sublime;
Into my trust His task unfurled
With humble fearlessness divine.
Within the cloistered walls I love
where I was schooled in Neri’s bent
To set my sights on heav’n above,
That, thus, my earthly life be spent!
