The Highway
"The Lord God is my strength, and He will make my feet like hinds' feet, and He will make me to walk upon mine high places." -- Hab. iii.19.

Mechthild of Hellfde, 1277.

tr., Emma Frances Bevan, 1899

It is a wondrous and a lofty road

Wherein the faithful soul must tread,

And by the seeing there the blind are led,

The senses by the soul acquaint with God.

On that high path the soul is free,

She knows no care nor ill,

For all God wills desireth she,

And blessed is His will.
