One Must Go Beyond Godby Angelus Silesius
English version by Maria Shrady
Original Language German
Where is my dewelling place? Where I can never stand.
Where is my final goal, toward which I should ascend?
It is beyond all place. What should my quest then be?
I must, transcending God, into the desert flee.
