Exertion has alleviated my desire, dear friend;
love for what is desired has revealed the toiling(?).
Imitate by toiling, love with the utmost desire,
and hear about the experience of unutterable contemplation;
it takes away and removes the sorrow of your soul,
it dissolves and purifies all filth,
it carries and brings you towards the vision of the divine,
towards the depths of exalting contemplations
of the blessed Triad, the source of light.
