~~not a fortress in mountain mist or palace of sun in a sapphire sky will still my ceaseless soul.
Nothing in my honor named on a banner,
~~not anything known of my renown raised on a towering standard;
None such as mother of pearl,
~~no one so much as queen of hearts;
Never a sword of glory,
~~not ever a saber of greatness in feat or threat;
Neither wellspring of healing nor fountain of youth,
~~not either diamond mine or lion’s pride, not even royal robe or cloak or warm-blooded coat;
Nor silver spoon and noble land,
~~neither any table spread with milk and honey;
Naught but God alone will fill the whole of my soul;
~~none ought but God, for no other will fill my soul.
