O Burning Mountain, O Chosen Sun
O burning mountain, O chosen sun,
O perfect moon, O fathomless well,
O unattainable height, O clearness beyond measure,
O wisdom without end, O mercy with out limit,
O strength beyond resistance, O crown beyond all majesty:
The humblest thing you created sings your praise. Amen.
- Mechthild of Magdeburg (1212-1283)
