Oh Fanciulla

“Oh Fanciulla, what will God then give you?

He will come to you as a heavenly youth

And will dance in heavenly places with you.”

 

“Oh Fanciulla, cosa ti darà dunque il tuo Dio?

Egli sarà per te un bel giovinetto

e danzerà con te le danze celesti.”

 

The Flowing Light of the Godhead, Mechthild of Magdeburg † 1250-1282
