I Was Found By My Beloved

To Christ Jesus, The Beloved 

by St. John of the Cross

My Beloved is my Bridegroom
And my Lord–O what a joy!
I will henceforth all the powers
Of my soul for him employ;
And the flock that once I tended,
Now I tend not as before
For my only occupation
Is to love Him more and more.

I have gone away forever
From the haunts of idle men
And a sharer in their follies
I will never be again.
They may say, and say it loudly,
I am lost; but I am not’
I was found by my Beloved,
O how blessed is my lot!
