Let reason go for His light
That burns reason up from head to foot.
If you wish to see that face,
Seek another eye. The philosopher
With his two eyes sees double,
So is unable to see the unity of the truth.
As His light burns up the angels,
Even as it consumes reason.
As the light of our eyes is to the sun,
So is the light of reason to the Light of lights.
