Teach me to live at every season
First by faith, and then by reason
Not by envy nor by pride"
By which so many souls have died; Not by feelings nor by "shoulds",
Nor passing lusts for earthly goods.
Not by comfort nor by ease,
But always You, my Love, to please;
Faith and reason working through love,
My heart rejoiced by things above.
Create a clean heart in me, O Lord,
And your Holy Spirit take not from me.
God, be merciful to me, the sinner.
Jesus, YOU are lord.
May I listen to your voice,
That I may enter your place of rest.
May I rejoice in you always.
May I pray without ceasing.
May I give thanks
In all circumstances.
Holy Spirit, pray in me constantly,
especially in moments of weakness and sin.
Fan the spark of my freedom into flame.
for where you are, there is freedom.<;p>
How happy are they whose strength you are!
They go from strength to strength.
You have given so much to me; give me one thing more, a thankful heart.
Make my heart's desire maximum participation in your own divine life, here, now and forever.
Jesus, Lord, to thee we raise
This, our hymn of thanks and praise.
Teach me, Lord, to love the cross,
Nor pine for gain, nor fret for loss.
Joseph, careful craftsman, pray for me.
Holy, holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty,
Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Blessed be your holy and glorious name,
Praiseworthy and exalted above all forever!
My being proclaims your glory, Lord,
And my spirit exalts in you, my Savior,
Because you have looked upon your lowly servant.
You have done great things in me.
And greater things shall do.
Hallowed be your name!
I hate vain thoughts,
but your law I love.
To do your will is my delight,
and your law is within my heart.
Had not your law been my delight,
I should have perished in my affliction.
May I meditate on your law day and night.
Unite my joy, work and pain with yours.
In you do I place my hope.
In faithfulness you have afflicted me.
You wound, but you also heal.
You give and you take away.
Hallowed be your name!
Lord, give me neither riches nor poverty,
But only my daily bread.
You are my strength and my salvation.
Of whom should I be afraid?
May I be holy, as you are holy.
You are the Lord my God.
May I be pure as you are pure,
That I may see you as you are.
Your mercy endures forever!
Blessed are you who come to us so rich in love and mercy!
Not to me, O Lord, not to me,
But to your name give the glory.
May your name, not mine, be praised.
I thank you Lord, that I am not like other people. (ironical)
I thank you, Lord, that I am fearfully, wonderfully, made.
Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.
Everything with You, in the Spirit, to please the Father.
I WILL be glad and rejoice in your gift!
This is the day that you have made.
I WILL be glad and rejoice in it!
Would that I were strong with love!
I shall follow your love wherever it leads.
Shall I turn to you in sorrows and not in joys?
Unless you guide the thought,
the thinker ponders in vain.
One thing I ask of you, Lord, one thing I seek;
To look on your loveliness,
now and forever!
Make my ways your ways, and my thoughts your thoughts.
Dying you destroyed our death;
Rising you restored our life;
Lord Jesus, come in glory!
I do believe. Help my unbelief!
May it be done to me according to my faith.
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful
And kindle in them the fire of your love.
With you there is mercy and fullness of redemption.
You are my Lord. Apart from you I have no good thing.
You are my portion and my cup!
Guide me in your ways and teach me,
For you are God my savior.
Speak Lord, for your servant listens.
I live now, not I, but you live in me.
In you I live and move and have my being.
Father, glorify your name!
Mother, teach me to be as obsessed with Jesus as you are.
Teach me to stand at the foot of the cross,
uniting my sufferings with His.
Teach me to adore with you the risen Christ.
Teach me to intercede with Him
That all may come to share His life and Spirit.
And may I adore and intercede with you forever.
You guide my feet in right paths,
For your name's sake.
How sweet are your words to my taste!
May I always taste and see how good you are!
My suffering is useless unless it is one with yours.
Though I fall, I shall not be utterly cast down,
For you uphold me with your hand.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
And I shall dwell in your house forever!
How happy are they who dwell in your house.
Continually they praise you!
You must increase, I must decrease.
If I have found favor in your eyes show me your face.
May I not hide your righteousness within my heart.
I must go apart, with you, from the crowd.
For you my flesh pines and my soul thirsts!
Lord Jesus, I believe that you are truly present in this sacrament of sacraments. I love you above all things and desire to give myself to you as fully as you give yourself to me in this host.
