O God, the Light of every heart that sees You, the life of every soul that loves You, the strength of every mind that seeks You, grant me to always remain steadfast in Your holy love. Be the joy of my heart; take it all to Yourself, and therein dwell. The house of my soul is, I confess, too narrow for You. Do enlarge it, that You may enter. It is in ruins, but do repair it. It contains that which must offend Your sight. I confess and know it; but whose help shall I implore in cleansing it, but Yours alone? To You, therefore, I cry urgently, beseeching You to cleanse me from my secret faults, and keep Your servant from presumptuous sins, that they never get dominion over me – Amen.
