447. Four supreme secrets

Lord Supreme,
All my life I have treasured
Three supreme secrets.
Today I shall share them with You:
    I love myself
    Infinitely more than I love You.
    I think I could have created
    A creation infinitely better
    Than Yours, Lord.
I absolutely mean it.
    And Lord, third but not least,
    For a long time I have
    Been trying to dethrone You,
    But with no success.
Alas, now that I have told You
My supreme secrets,
Will You give me something?
“Certainly I shall.
I am giving you My supreme secret:
    I love you.
I love you
    Infinitely more than I love Myself.
    Little heart, I love you infinitely more
    Than I love My entire creation.”
