In a chapel in Albuquerque NM, there are 6 wooden panels carved many years ago by Sister Giotto Moots and Sister Meinrad Craighead. After first seeing these panels in the 1980’s (and being a composer) I set the texts of 5 of them to music. But I never knew the precise source of the translations as carved on the panels. The translations are sort of unusual in nature, at least they seem so to me. Here is one of them, and I wonder if anyone could identify for me the source of this translation. It seems to be John 14:23–
LOVE ME AND YOU WILL EARN MY LOVE.
WAIT EARLY AT MY GATE AND YOU WILL GAIN ACCESS TO ME.
