"Innocency was found in me"

Do not be concerned about me, O King Darius;
Do not pass the night in fasting.
Fear is conquered by love God has given me—
Love, God-given, love that is lasting.

You need not go in haste to the lions' den,
O King Darius, in fear for my welfare;
Lust is conquered with chastity God has given me.
To face the lions with innocency, I dare.

Jealousy I meet with friendly courage,
Hatred with love and kindness I possess.
Revenge with charity reflected from my Father,
Envy by understanding its nothingness.
