O Root of Jesse, standing as a sign among the peoples;
before you kings will shut their mouths,
to you the nations will make their prayer:
Come and deliver us, and delay no longer.
From the beginning You created more than things
but hid in them a seed of Your life force,
for Love cannot make only one,

carries on, in me, in all.
If there is any doubt,
a tree stands ready
to renew my withered spirit.
Seed calls to seed.
I am created
