This foolish pride of mine

(1532)  He devata balo amay

Oh God, tell me please...
Why have You kept distant?
If pride was there,
Why did You not pulverize it?

Your light, Your air...
With Your hue is my display.
It's Your light.
Your clay, Your firmament...
With You everything's full to the brim.

A molecule am I, very-very little...
You are extremely vast, ruler of the universe.
I am a molecule.
For every adversity, You alone are remedy;
I am puny, afflicted and needy.

On Earth what would occur when there was none...
Not the least effort, nothing done.
What would occur in the world?
There was a wish ineffable
To get You, oh Sweetness.

  1. Without You what would I be? Why tolerate my baseless vanity?
