My heart had various longings,
    but since seeing you, they’ve all become one
My envied mine envier became, and
    I became the lord of mankind, since my lord you became
I left everyone to their world and their religion
    busy with my love for you, oh my world and my religion
You lit two fires in my liver:
    one between my ribs and the other between my guts.
