Amor est complementum legis.

Our God is love, who doth remain in love
In the same sphear with God himself doth move.
All things by perfect nature do agree,
And seem to hold a mutual sympathy:
The heavens to love their inclination show,
Which fairly do embrace this orb below.


The fire, the water, earth, and air agree,
And by kind nature intermixed be.
Love doth fulfil the law; love conquers sin,
And makes a man an earthly Cherubin
Faith, patience, hope, all vertues rightly skand,
Without pure love like barren fig-trees stand.
With perfect love are sweetest graces seen,
Like maids of honor waiting on the Queen.
Love is the wedding-garment; and no guest
Without this robe shall tast the royal feast.
Invest me Lord, with love, make thou me able,
And fit to feast with Angels at thy Table
