This makes me think...

I cannot dance, O Lord, unless you lead me.
If thou wilt that I leap joyfully
Then must thou thyself first dance and sing!
Then I will leap for love
From love to knowledge,
From knowledge to fruition,
From fruition to beyond all human sense.
There I will remain
And circle evermore.

---Mechthilde of Magnaburg (1210-1297), A Little Book of Women Mystics, Carole Lee Flinders.
