My Hope and Refuge

Ah, Lord God, Thou holy Lover of my soul, when Thou comest into my soul,
all that is within me shall rejoice. Thou art my Glory and the
exultation of my heart; Thou art my hope and refuge in the day of my
trouble. Set me free from all evil passions, and heal my heart of all
inordinate affections; that, being inwardly cured and thoroughly
cleansed, I may be made fit to love, courageous to suffer, steady to
persevere. Nothing is sweeter than love, nothing more courageous,
nothing fuller nor better in heaven and earth; because love is born of
God, and cannot rest but in God, above all created things. Let me love
Thee more than myself, nor love myself but for Thee; and in Thee all
that truly love Thee, as the law of love commandeth, shining out from
Thyself. Amen.

“Thomas à Kempis
