Your way of wisdom, Lord, is my desire,
Your love of man, O God, I would acquire;
In holiness, like you I strive to live,
With free and generous heart, teach me to give.
To be like you, my Savior, my only aim,
To never end a day as I was, the same;
Perfect me, draw me upward, into the light,
To dwell forever upon your city’s height.
Lord who took upon himself our pain, let us not add to the suffering of others, but work to relieve it.
God who brought peace through violence suffered by your Son, let us be your sons and daughters by promoting and pursuing peace.
Father who loves selflessly, who gave your Son and who gives all good things without measure, let us love because of who we are and not because of what we want others to be.
