The Assault

The assault advances,

The fear of wickedness arouses me,

Flustered by the infernal regions,

My heart aches, ‘Hecate gnaws’,


Why has my beloved bequeathed me ?

Wasn’t I embodied and embedded in HIM alone ?

If thou wouldst leave me alone,

Leave me, but with thy Heart, ‘O Jesus’ in my bosom’s Embrace.
