My heart had various longings, But since I laid my eyes on You, they’ve all become one.
Those I used to envy has envied me, and I became the lord of mankind, since you became My Lord.
My loved ones and enemies only blamed me on my love for You out of their oblivion to the magnitude of my affliction.
I left everyone to their world and their religion busy with my love for You, oh my world and my religion.
You lit two fires in my liver: One between my ribs and the other between my guts.
