A Prayer to begin the Day

Good Jesu, fountain of love:
Fill me with thy love,
Absorb me into thy love,
Compass me with they love,
That I may see all things in the light of thy love,
Receive all things as tokens of thy love,
Speak of all things in words breathing of thy love,
Win through thy love others to thy love,
Be kindled day by day with a new glow of thy love,
Until I be fitted to enter into thine everlasting love,
To adore thy love and love to adore thee,
My God and my all. Even so, come Lord Jesu!

–Edward Bouverie Pusey ( 1800-1882)
