Full Text

1 O my heart is full of laughter,
I am very, very glad;
For I have a precious treasure,
Such as princes never had.

Wilt thou have this precious “Ishi,”
Bridegroom of the soul to be?
He, the fairest of ten thousand,
Waits in love to welcome thee.

2 Ishi, Ishi is the jewel,
Mine he is while ages roll;
Angels taste not of such glory,
Holy Ishi of the soul. [Refrain]

3 Many beauteous names thou bearest,
Brother, Shepherd, Friend and King,
But they none unto my spirit
Such divine support can bring. [Refrain]

4 Other joys are short and fleeting;
Thou and I can never part;
Thou art altogether lovely,
Ishi, Ishi of my heart. [Refrain]
