I, the blazing life of divine wisdom,

I set alight the beauty of the plains,

I radiate the waters,

I glow in the Sun, and the Moon and the stars.

With wisdom I order all things right,

I beautify the Earth.

I am the breeze that nurtures all things green.

I am the rain coming from the dew

that makes the fields laugh with the pleasure of life.

I call up tears, the perfume of holy work.

I am the yearning for good.

~St Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179), Germany
