Lord, I believe in you; give me firmer faith.
I hope in you; give me surer hope.
I love you; make me love you more and more.
I adore you as my first Beginning,
and long for you as my last End.
I praise you as my constant Benefactor,
and call upon you as my gracious Protector.
Guide me in your wisdom,
restrain me by your justice,
comfort me by your mercy,
defend me by your power.
I offer you my thoughts, to be fixed on you;
my words, to have you as their theme;
my actions, to be done according to your will.
- Pope Clement XI
