Oh Christ!

May our hearts learn to feel your presence.
May our heads learn to think your living thoughts.
May our limbs learn to serve your aims.

Stay close to us. Live in us.

For we know that without you, our efforts bear no fruit.
We know that without you, all of our knowledge and wisdom is in vain.

Bless us with Your trust – trust that the Father knows all of our needs
Bless us with Your strength – strength to live what we know and to mean what we say
Bless us with Your love – love that bears all things.

Oh Christ, stay close to us.
