18. Ever and never

Will You love me, Lord,
If I love ignorance more?
  "I shall love you,
To you open My Spirit's Door."

Will You love me, Lord,
If I marry the fires of hell?
  "I shall love you;
Your life's venom-tree My Eye shall fell."

Will You love me, Lord,
If I live with wildest death?
  "I shall love you;
In you I sowed My deathless Breath."

Will You love me, Lord,
If I come to You alone?
  "Never! Bring quick
With you the world, else I shall moan."
