The Cherubinic Wanderer

Angelus Silesius (1624–1677)

Selections of Silesius’ masterpiece of mystical poetry, read in English and German original.

The rose which here thou seest  
with thine outward eye
Hath blossomed in God
from all eternity.
Die Rose, welche hier
dein äußres Auge sieht,
Die hat von Ewigkeit
in Gott also geblüht.
