The Love of the Lord

Ode 2
1 I am putting on the love of the Lord.

2 And His members are with Him, and I am dependent on them; and He loves me.

3 For I should not have known how to love the Lord, if He had not
continuously loved me.

4 Who is able to distinguish love, except him who is loved?

5 I love the Beloved and I myself love Him, and where His rest is, there I
am as well.

6 And I shall be no stranger, because there is no jealousy with the Lord
Most High and Merciful.

7 I have been united to Him, because the lover has found the Beloved,
because I love Him that is the Son, I shall become a son.

8 Indeed he who is joined to Him who is immortal, truly shall be immortal.

9 And he who delights in the Life will become living.

10 This is the Spirit of the Lord, which is not false, which teaches the
sons of men to know His ways.

11 Be wise and understanding and awakened. Halleluyah.*
