O name that is above all names
yet closer than loves treasured heart
beat close to mine, before each claim
separate from all love can start.

O name that is before all names
still nearer than loves whispered breath
breathe to my ear
-- the words,
the fame,
that naught can part,
not even death.

O name that is within all names
which love may give both breath and heart
beat close to me, that I might claim
each pulse, each pause, and bear my part.
