Dear God, we ask that we may love Thee for Thyself alone,For all the goodness and the beauty that are Thine;That we may know adoringly that Thou art Love supreme;The One serene, unchangeable, in power divine;The One most lovely, and the most to be desired by all.Let love for Thee alone make every heart a shrineOf purest joy.

Not only for the gracious gifts which Thou hast freely given;Not for the things our human need would vainly seek;Let not the loaves and fishes of our mortal thought prevail;Oh, let us not but turn to Thee because we're weak,And serve Thee only when our sense is filled with human fear;Nor seek Thee out because the sense-dreams vengeance wreak—Not just for that!

We'd love to hear from you!
