The Spiritual Canticle by Saint John of the Cross

The Spiritual Canticle

by Saint John of the Cross

Our bed is of flowers 
By dens of lions encompassed, 
Hung with purple
Made in peace, 
And crowned with a thousand shields of gold.
In Your footsteps 
The young ones run Your way; 
At the touch of the fire 
And by the spiced wine
The divine balsam flows.
