Joseph Friedlander, comp.  The Standard Book of Jewish Verse.  1917.
By Madame Guyon
I LOVE my God, but with no love of mine,
  For I have none to give;
I love thee, Lord, but all the love is thine,
  For by thy life I live.
I am as nothing, and rejoice to be        5
  Emptied and lost and swallowed up in thee.
Thou, Lord, alone art all thy children need,
  And there is none beside;
From thee the streams of blessedness proceed;
  In thee the blest abide.        10
Fountain of life, and all-abounding grace,
Our source, our centre, and our dwelling-place!
