O Lord, Holy Father, be Thou blessed now and evermore; because as Thou wilt so it is done, and what Thou doest is good. Let Thy servant rejoice in Thee, not in himself, nor in any other; because Thou alone art the true joy, Thou art my hope and my crown, Thou art my joy and my honour, O Lord. What hath Thy servant, which he received not from Thee, even without merit of his own? Thine are all things which Thou hast given, and which Thou hast made. I am poor and in misery even from my youth up,(1) …
Thomas A Kempis—Imitation of Christ
His Past Work.
"If you would direct your heart right And spread out your hand to Him,
My eye has wasted away with grief; It has become old because of all my adversaries.
O my God, I cry by day, but You do not answer; And by night, but I have no rest.
Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am in distress; My eye is wasted away from grief, my soul and my body also.
My heart throbs, my strength fails me; And the light of my eyes, even that has gone from me.
In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord; In the night my hand was stretched out without weariness; My soul refused to be comforted.
Be gracious to me, O Lord, For to You I cry all day long.
