I am, O my God, but a tiny seed
which Thou hast sown in the soil of Thy love,
and caused to spring forth by the hand of Thy bounty.
This seed craveth, therefore, in its inmost being,
for the waters of Thy mercy
and the living fountain of Thy grace.
Send down upon it,
from the heaven of Thy loving-kindness,
that which will enable it to flourish beneath
Thy shadow and within the borders of Thy court.
Thou art He Who watereth the hearts
of all that have recognized Thee
from Thy plenteous stream
and the fountain of Thy living waters.
Praised be God, the Lord of the worlds.
