My Lord, I know now what I ought to ask of Thee.
Thou and Thou alone knowest my needs.
Thou lovest me more than I am able to love Thee.
O Father, grant unto me, Thy servant, all which I cannot ask.
For a cross I dare not ask, nor for consolation; I dare only to stand in Thy presence.
My heart is open to Thee.
Thou seest my needs of which I myself am unaware.
Behold and lift me up!
In Thy presence I stand, awed and silenced by Thy will and Thy judgements, into which my mind cannot penetrate.
To Thee I offer myself as a sacrifice.
No other desire is mine to to fulfill Thy will.
Teach me how to pray.
Do Thyself pray within me.
