Oh Lord, for this I pray
|Oh Lord, for this I pray: Make my heart the good earth
So that You may grow in me, grow and grow continually.
Oh Lord, may this living incorruptible seed
Within me enlivening, grow unto maturity.
|Let Your life within me saturate,
Let Your life within me permeate.
May all Your fulness be expressed through me
And my being be conformed to Thee.
|Renew my mind, oh Lord, day by day dispense Your life;
My wandering thoughts purify completely;
Replace my will, oh Lord, with Your will that I would say
"Oh Lord, Amen," always trusting You, following You.
|Increase my love for You so that I would love You,
Return Your love with Yours, responding to Your call;
Reveal more of Yourself to me so I can see
Your divine economy, shine on me Your speaking.
