God must give us a renewed mind (from Vale Millies)by Hadewijch
English version by Mother Columba Hart
Original Language Dutch
God must give us a renewed mind
For nobler and freer love,
To make us so new in our life
That Love may bless us
And renew, with new taste,
Those to whom she can give new fulness;
Love is the new and powerful recompense
Of those whose life renews itself for Love alone.
-- Ay, vale, vale, millies --
That renewing of new Love
-- Si dixero, non satis est --
Which renewal will newly experience.
