Preference to Thee onlyIf the accumulated wealth of the entire universe is pitted
against a drop of Thy love
I will give preference to the tiniest drop of Thine.
If on one side is stored up the beauty of the whole world
and on the other is kept a shadow of Thy sacred presence,
I shall select the shadow resulting from the sweet, sacred frame of Thine.
If in one corner is gathered grandeur of the grand globe
and in the other is exhibited the dust of Thy fragrant feet,
I shall certainly prefer that dust indeed.
Since I have realized that beauty, wealth, grandeur and power
are subordinate and only a portion of Thine,
I shall choose only Thee. O my soul!
I shall give Thee preference all the time
under all circumstances or stages of happiness and misery in life.
