Sing the canticle,
Of love, of simple faith;
Quit the false politics
That belies the faith.

Everything is going on, anything goes
And always will.
No trace will remain of any,
Except those who love.

Love, dear brothers and sisters,
Love God only:
All other love is rash,
And unworthy of a lover.

~~Madame Guyon
