Original text and translations

English.png English text

For the love of God is broader than the measure of our mind;
And the heart of the Eternal is most wonderfully kind.
If our love were but more simple, we should take Him at His word;
And our lives would be all sunshine in the sweetness of our Lord.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

God uit God, Gij eerstgeboren licht uit licht, o zonneschijn,
in wiens lichaam uitverkoren heiligen slechts heilig zijn,
schenk ons leven uit uw bronnen; door uw adem aangeraakt
zingen wij tot Vader, Zoon en heilige Geest die levend maakt.
