Send forth Your light and Your truth to shine on the earth, for I am as
earth, empty and formless until You illumine me. Pour out Your grace from
above. Shower my heart with heavenly dew. Open the springs of devotion to
water the earth, that it may produce the best of good fruits. Lift up my
heart pressed down by the weight of sins, and direct all my desires to
heavenly things, that having tasted the sweetness of supernal happiness, I
may find no pleasure in thinking of earthly things.
Snatch me up and deliver me from all the passing comfort of creatures, for
no created thing can fully quiet and satisfy my desires. Join me to
Yourself in an inseparable bond of love; because You alone can satisfy him
who loves You, and without You all things are worthless.
