Translation by R. Coffin (+1885): 

1. I dwell a captive in this Heart,
On fire with love divine
‘Tis here I live alone in peace,
And constant joy is mine.

It is the Heart of God’s own Son
In His Humanity
Who all enamored of my soul,
Here burns with love of me.

2. Here like the dove within the Ark
Securely I repose;
Since now the Lord is my defence,
I fear no earthly foes.

Now I have found this happy home,
God’s love alone I prize;
All else is torment to my heart,
The world I now despise.

3. What though I suffer, still in love
I ever true will be;
My love of God shall deeper grow
When crosses fall on me.

Then he who longs with me to seek
Repose within this nest,
All love that is not love for God
Must banish from his breast.
