Yea! I shall drink from Thee

by Mechthild of Magdeburg

English version by Lucy Menzies
Original Language German

Yea! I shall drink from Thee
And Thou shalt drink from me
All the good God has preserved in us.
Blessed is he who is so firmly established here
That he may never spill out
What God has poured into him.

-- from German Mystical Writings: Hildegard of Bingen, Meister Eckhart, Jacob Boehme, and others, Edited by Karen J. Campbell
