Prayer: Teresa of Avila

Majestic King, forever wise,
You melt my heart, which once was cold,
And when your beauty fills my eyes,
It makes them young, which once were old.

Christ, my creator, hear my cry,
I am all yours, your call I hear,
My Savior, Lover, yours I am,
My heart to yours be ever near.

Whether in life or death’s last hour,
If sickness, pain, or health you give,
Or shame or honor, weakness, power,
Thankful is the life I live.
