Lord, in the name
Of Christ Jesus,
My king,
I ask You
To sustain me,
Give me
What You
Would have
For me,
Sustain me, Lord,
In the face
Of these emotions
That gratify me
Not as they
Used to, but
Tear at me,
Drawing me back
To a life
At enmity
With Your will.
I knew not then,
But now I see
The difference
Between what
Lust and need
Means to my
Eternity in You.
Save me, Lord,
Help me to do
What pleases You
In spite of me,
Drawn to Your love
To be a son
Who follows
Not indifferently
But after Your will
With passion, my king.
Let this be.
