4. Tears

O clever tears
Of my eyes,
  Stop descending.

O secret tears
Of my heart,
  Start ascending.
God is awaiting your great arrival.

O sacred tears
Of my soul,
  I love you;
  I love you only.

Not because you have the world-treasure,
Not because you are the world-treasure,
But because you have chosen me
  As your very own.
