A prayer of the Church
O God, most beautiful, most priceless One,
O God, most glorious, uncreated One,
O God, eternal, beatific One,
O God, O infinite and hidden One,
O God, immense, O God the Living One,
You, wisdom of the Everlasting One,
You, ever-loved and ever-loving One;
Make me, O holy God, Thy treasured one;
Make me, O glorious Lord, Thy precious one;
Make me, O highest Good, Thy longing one;
Make me, O blessed Light, Thy chosen one;
Make me forevermore Thy loving one.
My soul is dark away from You, my own;
My eyes are dim in seeking You, my own;
My flesh doth pine away for You, my own;
My heart leaps up with joy to You, my own;
My spirit faints receiving You, my own.
Where in the height of heaven, is light like You?
Where in the breadth of heaven is bliss like You?
Where, in the depth of heaven, is peace like You?
Where, in the home of love, is love like You?
With all my heart I give myself to You;
And waiting, wait, O King and Spouse for You,
Till I am one for evermore with You.
O sweetest Jesus, bring me home to You;
Free me, O dearest God, from all but You;
And break all chains that keep me back from You;
Call me, O thrilling Love, I follow You;
You are my all, and I have nothing but You.
O hidden Love, Who now is loving me,
O wounded Love, Who once was dead for me,
O sun-crowned Love, Who is alive for me,
O patient Love, Who never wearies of me —
Alone of all, You weary not of me —
O bear with me till I am lost in You;
O bear with me till I am found in You.
