A Beautiful Sonnet Attributed To The Saints

A beautiful sonnet has been attributed to many saints such as St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila: “I am not moved to love you, Lord, By promises of paradise; Nor does the hell that terrifies Move me to want to sin no more. You are the one that moves me, Lord, When to your cross I turn my eyes To see your wounds, hear insults, lies; I’m grieved to know you’re dying, Lord. Your love moves me in such a way That without heaven I’d love you still, And without hell, I’d fear to stray. I need no goads or giveaway; For even if my hopes were nil, I’d love you as I do today.”
