With all our strength...

The prayer has great power which we pray with all our strength.

It makes an embittered heart mellow,
a sad heart joyful, a foolish heart wise,
a timid heart strong, a blind heart clear-seeing,
a cold heart ardent.

It draws God who is great into a heart which is small. 
It drives the hungry soul up to the fulness of God. 

It unites the two lovers, God and soul, 
in a place of bliss, where they converse long of love.
-Mechthild of Magdeburg
