Thus it is that thy joy in me is so full

Language: English after the Bangla (Bengali)

Thus it is that thy joy in me is so full. 
Thus it is that thou hast come down to me. 
O thou lord of all heavens, 
where would be thy love if I were not?

Thou hast taken me as thy partner 
of all this wealth. 
In my heart is the endless play of thy delight. 
In my life thy will is ever taking shape.

And for this, thou who art the King of kings 
hast decked thyself in beauty 
to captivate my heart. 
And for this thy love loses itself 
in the love of thy lover, 
and there art thou seen 
in the perfect union of two.

C'est ainsi qu'en moi ta joie est...

Language: French (Français) after the English

C'est ainsi qu'en moi ta joie est plénitude.
C'est ainsi que tu es descendu en moi.
Ô toi, seigneur de tous les cieux,
où serait ta joie si je n'étais pas ?

Tu m'as pris pour partenaire
de toutes ces richesses.
Tes délices sans fin jouent dans mon cœur.
Ta volonté prendra toujours forme dans ma vie.

Et pour cela toi qui es le Roi des rois,
tu t'es paré toi-même de beauté
pour fasciner mon cœur.
Et pour cela ton amour se perd lui-même
dans l'amour de ton soupirant,
et tu es alors visible
dans cette parfaite dyade.
