A description of the experience

Jacopone da Todi – Lord Thou Hast shown me

 Ah, how my earth bound thoughts
Are hideous and mean
Beside those heights serene
Where virtue's treasures be
That Deep whereon I gaze
I cannot swim therein
I must be swallowed clean
Like men who drown at sea
Shoreless Infinity
I sink in Thee, the Whole
Thy fulness storms my soul
Thou Sweetness and Thou Light

The source of the experience
