Representative 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.

Refrain:
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]
