English version by Stanbrook Abbey
Original Language Latin

                    One thing alone I crave
                                namely
                          All in everything

                               This One
                                  I seek
                            the only One
                              do I desire

                            Rooted in One
                                  is all
                            from the One
                                flows all

                       This is the very One
                                I seek
                              will have
                              only then
                              be filled

                          Unless I drink
                            this Spring
                               I thirst
       for nowhere else sup I to be fulfilled

                  What or Who this One is
                          I may not say
                         can never feel
                              Nothing
                          more or less
                        is there to say

           For the One is not simply in all
                the One Being is over all

                    YOU are my GOD
                          holding me
                  within my very SELF
