Love is enough: ho ye who seek saving,
Go no further! come hither: there have been who have found it,
And these know the House of Fulfilment of craving;
These know the Cup with the roses around it,
These know the World’s Wound and the balm that hath bound it:
Cry out! the World heedeth not, "Love, lead us home!"

Come, pain ye shall have, and be blind to the ending,
Come, fear ye shall have, 'mid the sky’s overcasting,
Come, change ye shall have, for far are ye wending,
Come, no crown ye shall have for your thirst and your fasting,
But the kissed lips of Love and fair life everlasting.

Is he gone? was he with us? ho ye who seek saving,
Go no further! Come hither: for have we not found it?
Here is the House of Fulfilment of craving,
Here is the Cup with the roses around it;
The World’s wound well healed, and the balm that hath bound it,
Cry out! for he heedeth, fair Love that led home.
