TRAMORE PARISH FEAST DAY – Monday 14th September

 

Exalting the Holy Cross

1

O Sweet Love, you have killed your Beloved,

I beg of you, let me die of Love!

Love, you who led your Lover to such a hard death,

why have you done this?

Was it that you did not want me to perish?

Do not spare me, let me die in Love’s embrace.

2

You did not spare him whom you loved so dearly;

Why then be indulgent with me?

Catch me on your hook, like fish that cannot get away-

That will be a sign that you love me.

Do not spare me: I long to die drowned in Love.

Love is fixed to the cross-

The cross has taken him and will not let him go.

3

I run and cling to that cross

That my anguish may not drive me mad.

To flee would lead me to despair;

For my name would be cancelled from the book of Love.

O cross, I fix myself to you and cling to you,

That as I die, I may taste Life!

For you are adorned with honeyed Death

And I am wretched not to have tasted you!

O daring soul, impatient for wounds,

May I die heartbroken with Love!

4

I run to the cross and read

Its blood-stained pages-

That is the book that makes me a doctor

of natural philosophy and theology.

O book inscribed with golden letters

And all a bloom with Love!

5

O Love of the Lamb, vaster than any sea,

Who can dare to speak of you?

He who has drowned in you,

and no longer knows where he is;

He whom folly seems that right path,

Who goes about crazed by Love.
