ORACION DE LA AMANTE PRAYER OF HER WHO LOVES
Eva Durán trans. Anabel Torres


Señor
concédeme la fuerza
para bajar los ojos
ante la presencia de mi amado
para callar
a una señal de sus manos
al susurro de su voz
dame humildad
para servir en su templo
con la misma devoción
con que entrego en tu altar
el fruto de mis días
 
Concédeme la gracia
de amarle mas que a mi misma
para gloria tuya
Amen


Lord,
Give me the strength
To lower my eyes
In the presence of my loved one
To keep still
At a signal from his hand
At the whisper of his voice
Grant me humility
To serve in his temple
With the same devotion
With which I offer at thy altar
The fruits of my days

Grant me the grace
To love him more than I love myself
For thy greater glory
Amen.
